Odd numbers. City streets. Yoga. My piano. Long afternoons at the Homestead. Excellent coffee. Film cameras. The Chicago Manual of Style. Good beer. Live music. And visiting the beach after dark.
I like to think I've had many different careers in many different stages of my life—from professional piano accompanist to arts educator to theater lit nerd to website developer to SEO pro to startup product/marketing "jack of all trades."
I'm currently using these skills to design creative, compelling content for a wide variety of projects. I believe the best experiences are crafted by understanding who your audience is, listening to them, and developing an authentic and cohesive voice for your product, your company, and your community. I bring to the table meticulous writing and editing skills, years of experience designing successful SEO strategies, and a deep understanding of how to craft crisp, clear messaging.
Right now I'm thrilled to be working with the team at Mighty Networks to build amazing online communities where members can tap their peers to make better decisions in building their business or practice. Want to know more about what I do? Please contact me.
I am always learning, and (hopefully!) always getting better at what I do.
I've been known to wear a spirit animal hat on occasion.
Outdoor adventuring makes me happy.
In 2016, I participated in my first go at #the100DayProject and captured #100daysofstoriesinphotos with my dSLR. In 2017, I decided to try something new, by fumbling my way through #100daysofwatercoloradventures. I am by no means a painter of any kind (and, in truth, these are the first paintings I've made since the age of 10 by my best guess), but the exercise has been exciting, weird, scary, and (thankfully) quite fulfilling so far.
A while back, I also embarked on a 365 project that pushed me to capture something every day (or at least ~300 of those days) to reflect my city, my life, and my world. The following year I started walking, biking, and hiking every inch of my city in pursuit of a project I haven't quite finished yet—capturing a photograph of every single laundromat in San Francisco. A few of the early photos I took can be found here.
I fell in love with a twisted short film by Don Hertzfeldt about 17 years ago. Somehow, I latched on to this little guy. Somehow, it stuck. If you see this image out there as an avatar somewhere on the internet, it's probably me.
