ABOUT ME

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, I'm a child of the '80s and a student of the digital age. I spend my time learning about new technologies, traveling and seeking out a happy path in life. I'm crazy hopeful about the future. My home base is Brooklyn, but I've been known to wander.  

I currently work in marketing at StellaService, a NYC-based startup that measures and rates the customer service performance of online retailers. For the past seven years I've worked in editorial, marketing and PR roles at startups including The Huffington Post, GOOD MagazineParticipant Media and ThingsWeStart. While working at Participant Media's takepart.com I had the opportunity to work on on digital campaigns for documentary and feature films -- The CoveDisneynature's OceansThe Soloist, and Food, Inc.), and covered the 2009 United Nations climate summit from Copenhagen. In 2007 I graduated from Western Washington University with a bachelor's degree in journalism. 

I've previously been a member of City Year Seattle's Young Professionals Host Committee, and I mentor college students through the WWU Alumni Association's ASK program. I enjoy supporting projects that protect our environment (NRDC, Sierra Club, Waterkeeper Alliance), improve access to quality education (City Year, Room to Read, 826) and bring communities together around great music (KEXP, KCRW).
