A writer and content creator based in Brooklyn, NY.

If it has words in it, it's in my wheelhouse.

Three things you need to know:

What's your "deal"?

When I’m not typing the day away on my keyboard or discussing internet culture, baseball, or Forumla 1 racing with my wife, I can usually be found geeking out on LEGO sets or binge-watching Ancient Aliens (hey, don’t judge). I operate with a Kansas City kindness, wild Nevadan way of thinking, and a New York work ethic. I like to think I take after my idols — Douglas Adams, John Cleese, and Obi Wan Kenobi. This varying cast of fictional and non-fictional characters all have two things in common: They’re all taller than me, and they’re all dedicated to refining what they do best.

What's your background?

I'm a creative person at my core. I've created and delivered content in agency, in-house, and freelance settings. Whether it's conceptualizing and creating digital campaigns, digitally doodling brand voices, or giving Al Roker and podcasters something to talk about — my bread and butter is anything in front of a computer. I have real-world experience with local, regional, national, and even international brands. I am a storyteller who loves to excite and empower readers.

What's your favorite color?

Green. And orange. And actually yellow is pretty alright. Actually, I don't hate purple or blue, either. Red I could do without, but maroon is okay.
