A bit about me
My passion is storytelling, first and foremost—whether that’s through long-format writing, social media, with a website/blog or a big-picture communication strategy.
I’ve sat on both sides of the media aisle, first serving as a public information officer and now as an arts and business writer. Along the way, I learned HTML and CSS, became passionate about the efficiency of content management systems for the web and discovered the power of directly telling folks a brand story through interactive media.
Because I’ve had dipped my toes into such diverse waters of the communications world, my approach is uniquely holistic regardless of the project.
In 2009, I began teaching digital communication classes through the Pacific Northwest College of Art’s excellent Continuing Education program. Working with students—particularly adult students seeking to improve their skills or enrich their lives—has been the most rewarding work of my career.
I’m also am enthusiastic dog wrangler to two wild Australian Shepherds, an avid reader and book blogger, podcaster, DIY fiend, sports nut and enthusiastic fan of the best television show ever, Friday Night Lights.
