books. plants. people. trails.
Creative problem solver and smooth operator specializing in management of projects, programs, products, and communities.
If you're interested in collaborating, sharing travel stories, going for a run or grabbing coffee, send me an email. I'd love to hear from you.
My work experience spans across many cities, countries, companies, industries, and people.
For over a decade, I've worked in a variety of roles building and growing companies, products, programs, projects, and communities in industries including travel, creative media, fintech, edtech, non-profit, and venture capital.
Throughout my career, I've operated under the same ethos: create connections with people you work with, keep your customers happy, never stop experimenting, and do more for others than yourself.
The most consistent thing people say about my work style is that it always gets complete, I'm always looking for improvements, and I always ensure the team enjoys the process.
About me ☕️🏃🌿📚✈️
I've spent time living and working in Chicago, Seattle, New York City, Cape Town, and half a year vagabonding across North America.
In 2017, I temporarily moved to Cape Town, South Africa, and discovered trail running. Since then, I've tracked hundreds (thousands?) of miles on trails all across the USA and Mexico. Over time, I became obsessed with using running as a vehicle to discover new places, cultures, and new things about myself.
Trail running, along with travel, has helped fuel my passion for photography and storytelling. This combination has ushered me to running trails throughout Canada, Colombia, Iceland, and New Zealand, and pushed me to guide trail running retreats across Mexico and the USA for Aire Libre.
When not working or running trails, I'm probably planning my next trip, working on my vertical garden, reading a new adventure book, practicing yoga, or improving my amateur photography skills.
