I grew up snowboarding, skateboarding & writing in the Pacific Northwest. I can ollie. I survived “Info Hell” at the University of Oregon’s prestigious journalism program.
When I take on Public Relations projects, I choose clients who exude creativity and kindness, an appreciation for the natural world, and a desire to make quality products that last.
My tendency is that of both a writer and a strategist. I love the music of poetry and understand the necessity of structured thinking. I thrive on deadlines.
My writing has appeared in Snowboarder Magazine, Transworld Snowboarding, Cooler, Future Magazine, Transworld Business and on ESPN’s action sports website, Xgames.com. I’ve also crafted copy for press releases, products, ads, events and press kits at Salomon Snowboards, Bonfire, Roxy, and Vans. I’ve worked as a communications manager, a media buyer, a public relations specialist and storyteller for brands, products, and events.
