What I read

A lit bit of everything! I love a good beach read, but also read a lot to expand my skills. In the last 6 months my faves have been Delivering Happiness (gave me so many good ideas) & The Short & Tragic Life of Robert Peace.

Side projects

I created AwesomeMitten.com 4 years ago as a way for Michiganders to learn about cool new things happening throughout the state, and it's growth has been insane! I also started Family Video's social media presence 5 years ago.
