Experience

Summary

I was a health coach for seven years, but the best part was always my blog. In 2017, I transitioned into writing and research full time. I focus on short- and medium-form pieces on food, health, crafts, and agriculture, when not working on my own book.

Work history

Agricultural Hemp: A Review of Technical Literature
A review of literature published between 1854 and 2018 on the processing of hemp for textile production, with a specific focus on decortication, softening, and spinning, plus additional notes of the pros and cons of cottonizing and chemical processing.
Website Design and Copy
Squarespace website design and marketing copy for a budding ceramic artist in Denver.

Team Interviews: A Blog Series

GoFire is a young tech startup in Denver that hired me to interview their team and write a series of blog posts to endear their staff to their growing customer base. Unfortunately, they outgrew their bespoke marketing efforts and hired a PR team, so my original blog posts have been replaced.

What I read

Taproot Magazine, Reading My Tea Leaves Blog, too many books on fiber, regenerative agriculture, rural economies, sustainability, history.

Side projects

I do a lot of spit-balling with local artists about business strategy. I'm a member of my community garden and a local pottery co-op. I transitioned out of the alternative health world but still network with naturopaths and other healers.

Ideal team

I love to work with teams who make a difference and have clear roles and goals. I like as much info as you can give me up front and clear expectations and deadlines. I don't like working with people who fill their time (or mine) with mindless tasks.
