At my core, I'm a strategist and writer helping customers grow in impact and profitability. My business, culture, science, and tech stories appear in QUARTZ/Atlantic Media, Fast Company, and New York Magazine. My Fast Company story on filmmaker Joss Whedon, Why You Need a Creative Shift instead of a Vacation, inspired my creative shift into content marketing and design strategy.
