For as long as I can remember, I’ve lived at the intersection of technology and creativity—whether it was learning HTML by way of a Geocities website in middle school, serving as self-appointed webmaster for my high school percussion section in high school, or running a blog about my favorite music artists in college.
In the workplace, I’ve held many different positions, but in each one, I’ve always found a way to center my work around digital content creation and design. Below are a few selected examples from the past five years.
At FareHarbor, I built the company’s Help Center from the ground up, publishing 300+ pages and 20+ videos using a homegrown CMS built on top of WordPress.
While the company was in startup mode I also got to flex my video production skills, jumping in to assist with email campaigns and marketing materials when needed. I created the below video during my first year at the company by teaching myself Adobe Premiere Pro and using a combination of original content and stock media.

When I became a Product Owner, I used my writing and design skills to help distill complex concepts into simple user interfaces and clear, friendly UI copy. Working closely with a tight-knit group of designers and engineers, I helped build some of FareHarbor’s most impactful features, while also documenting them for a global user base.
All the while, I kept up a side hustle in freelance writing. For Hoodline, I wrote 80+ stories, supplemented with photos I took myself.
I’ve also used my personal blog as a continued outlet for my personal thoughts on music, movies, and pop culture.
I am always looking for interesting opportunities to create original content and have an impact on a local scale. I also enjoy any excuse to not talk about work, and love meeting people who are just as passionate about San Francisco, classic rock, and cats as me.
