Yup that’s me in a blurp…

Now some longer form….

I’m digital strategist, technologist & online professional that believes “community” should be at the core of any company’s strategy. I’ve spent most of my career working for startups (but I’ve worked with and for much bigger media companies.) Call me a glutton for punishment, but I love the creative working environment you find in the often hectic and fast paced world of entrepreneurs who have grand ideas, visions and products they are trying to bring into the world. The ever changing nature and uncertainty of startups has never bothered me – if anything I thrive on it.

I’m a “Third Culture Adult”, growing up as a Third Culture Kid, having spent a great deal of my life in Hong Kong and Traveling extensively. What does that mean? Well…

  • I can can curse convincingly in at least six different languages.
  • My accent, and the language/choice of words I use changes depending on who I’m talking to.
  • I’m really good at calculating time differences.
  • I start getting birthday wishes several hours before my birthday, from my friends in the far east.
  • I have a love-hate relationship with the question “Where are you from?”
  • I’ve spent an absurd and probably unhealthy amount of time on airplanes and definitely know my way around jet-lag recovery – need a tip? Drop me note.
  • My circle of best friends is as politically, racially, and religiously diverse as the United Nations – seriously my high school had students from over 100 nations.
  • This post is so true – YES to all
