What I read

I devour books. My favorite nonfiction books are The Tipping Point, Contagious, and Freakonomics series. I prefer fiction authors such as Karin Slaughter and Jodi Piccoult. I also read magazines, blogs, and news. Heck, I even read cereal boxes.

Side projects

In 2008, I opened an online photo card store called Little Piggy Toes via Etsy. I design, market, and sell photo cards for various occasions. In my spare time, I enjoy exercising, coaching my son's baseball team, and spending time with family.

Ideal team

I like to work independently, but enjoy collaborating with others. I work best in small group settings with folks who are passionate and creative. I prefer to take a project and run with it. I don't take criticism personally, but use it to improve.
