I'm a meticulous, deadline-driven writer, editor and copy director based in San Francisco. I was born and raised in Minneapolis, but, as it turns out, I'm not too keen on snow, so I headed west and took refuge in the land of steep hills and foggy skies.

I love telling inspiring, consumer-driven stories in innovative ways across all channels; advancing a brand’s positioning through smart, bold content strategies fueled by data; and leading a team of ambitious, outside-the-box creatives.

In my spare time I blog about fashion, beauty, travel and health at ArtOfWore.com. I also hike up and down mountains, sing karaoke at dive bars and wander thrift stores looking for vintage treasures.

 

10 Lesser-Known Facts About Me:

  1. I secretly yearn to time travel back to the '80s and be a drummer in an epic hair band.
  2. I had pet rats when I was a kid. They were all named after spices, and they all developed enormous tumors.
  3. I'm a twin. And yes, we totally communicate telepathically.
  4. I can eat tacos faster than anyone you've ever met.
  5. I once bungy-jumped off the Kawarau Bridge in Queenstown, New Zealand and have video evidence to prove it.
  6. I'm tall yet suck at basketball. Apologies to gym teachers of the world.
  7. For the past ten years my life partner has been a man who knows all the rules to Dungeons & Dragons. Nerds are my favorite.
  8. I can shake my eyeballs back and forth really fast.
  9. If I could eradicate one thing from the face of the Earth it would be silverfish.
  10. I consider myself a grammar snob, but "lay" vs. "lie" gets me every time.
