A LOOK
INSIDE MY HEAD

When I was only ten, I learned how to type on a manual typewriter. A-S-D-F...J-K-L-;...since then, I’ve written over 2,000 blogs and enjoy sharing my words with others. 

As a writer, you see the world around you as a story waiting to be told. Every experience acts as an actor for this beautiful story we’re fortunate enough to call “life.” I hope you appreciate my writing as much as I’ve had, living the story. 

watching clouds

Writing
When was the last time you stopped to watch the clouds? My Opa had a way with his words. He was one of the most articulate and well-written men I've ever encountered. When he told a story, he would paint the conversation with vivid setting; placing you in the center.

Unconditional 2.0

Writing
As a millennial, I’ve been blessed to see the world from several angles. It seems like only days ago that I remember using paper maps to navigate cross-country trips, rather than use Google Maps or Waze to zip through the traffic and beat your arrival goal time. When I was.

responsibilities

Writing
I recently chatted with a longtime friend of mine. We're pushing a decade of friendship, and have seen each other grow through a lot of really interesting life chapters; most recently, I had the joy of watching her get married. Sharing in the celebration was one of the most special.

Masterpiece[s]

Writing
This morning, I was riding the BART to San Francisco and stumbled across a few thoughts I felt were worth sharing. Every morning, I follow a nearly identical routine (including the same breakfast items) and intentionally open my mind to new thoughts/ideas which present themselves on the canvas of this.

Fixing things

Writing
Per usual, I find it harder to come up with a beginning line for this blog. Happy Hump day. When I was working as a consultant through TripleSkinny, I'd often find myself getting introduced to problems that were caused by others. Whether it was a broken website, CRM, or mobile advertising campaign,.
