What I read

For pleasure, I read a combination of novels (Murakami is a favorite), fascinating non-fiction (I love Mary Roach), and interesting articles (usually found via Twitter). For work, a wide range of blogs/articles on tech, data, and marketing case studies.

Side projects

In addition to my freelance work, I am a director and advisor for an energy efficient product company.

Ideal team

I have experience and am comfortable working with small, startup clients as well as large, corporate clients. I prefer to work with a relatively small, focused team and enjoy having a large degree of autonomy in how work is executed.
