Digital Strategist at the Intersection of User-Experience Design, Content Strategy and Social Media

Biography

I love building things and connecting dots.

I'm an accomplished design-oriented digital strategist with experience helping organizations from small nonprofits to Fortune 500 companies.

Interested in using technology to connect people, build stronger communities and make the world a better place.

These days I'm most passionate about user-experience design and social technologies, but historically I'm a big thinker about nonprofits, technology, journalism and particularly the intersection of the three.

I've also (at various times) written a symphony, built and programmed robots, designed interactive sound installations and created original music and sound design for theater and modern dance.

I'm equal parts right and left brained, a lover and creator of well-designed user experiences and compelling stories, effectively told and an all-around (occasionally wannabe) geek.

Local food lover, runner, climber, coffee drinker, photographer, bike rider, writer (and occasional blogger), lover of the outdoors, dog person.
