Bio: I've got a PhD in rhetoric and cultural studies, but I still speak human English. I've banked almost 15 years in the creative and nonprofit sectors. All told, I've a unique perspective on and capacity for strategy (content, communications, social media, brand, campaign, UX), copywriting, copy editing, marketing, research and analysis, and client relationships.

I'm passionate about community, progress, creativity, and am endlessly curious about the relationships among media, pop culture, and social equity. I live in Portland, Oregon with my two young sons and am interested in: writing, reading, running, yoga, dancing, karaoke, slow bike commuting, fashion, food, contemplating big ideas with friends, theater, film, and music. 


I like to meditate. A lot. Through that practice I've come to feel deeply connected to and compassionate toward human-kind. I bring this big love to all that I do, and most especially to my work.
