With a Delta Airlines pilot for a father, I grew up jet-setting. I’ve traveled to over 30 countries and lived years abroad in Buenos Aires, Sevilla, and Montréal, so before I ever took on a career-identity, I first self-identified as a spirited adventurer.
In 2014, I completed my MBA at the Acton School of Business – one of the top programs in the country for Entrepreneurship. Unsurprisingly, I caught the Austin tech-bug, and today I’m a Product Marketing Manager at a fast-growing ecommerce technology company.
I’m passionate about empowering others, so I’m a mentor to young MBAs and provide hospital accompaniments to survivors of sexual abuse.
When it comes to self-investment, yoga is my grounding force, and live performance storytelling really brings me to life. There’s nothing I love more than the rush of recounting a story in full color and animation to a captive audience.
My mission in life is to facilitate authentic human connection, which I do through pay-it-forward projects like Edge of the Bed (collaboration with TED speaker Drew Dudley) and a new business I’m launching that delivers messages people need to share before they die.
If you want to connect, I’d love to meet you.
The purpose of this blog is to help me hone in on the “hows” and “whats”of my life work, that all accomplish a certain “why”. I must ask myself, “How can I create unforgettable experiences that surprise and delight? How can I disrupt your routine and make you witness something extraordinary? What can I create that sparks genuine human connection between people?” because these are the things I care most deeply about. By collecting ideas of things that inspire me, I’ll be actively chipping away at that block of wood that will one day become a beautiful creation.
I’ll have a very high bar for content to live here, so I bet you’ll enjoy what I’ve curated. I implore you to help me on my quest; if you see a post that reminds you of some other inspiring project/person/phenomena, forward it or share it in the comment box below.
I’m excited to publicly commit to this journey. The search will be fulfilling and I look forward to all the “aha’s” ahead of me.
