I’ve always been a writer of sorts. When I was little, I wrote tiny books for my stuffed animals. Now that I’m older, I write all kinds of things in all kinds of places. Novels, short stories, blog posts, SEO articles, travel pieces, and even a bit of marketing copy…
You can find the bulk of my writing here.
And there are a few other places you may have seen my work:
A current client. They’re a business education company that serves visionary businesses and entrepreneurs. I wrote a few posts for the content team back in 2015 (and held down the blog as interim Blog Editor for a short stint) and am now writing long-form SEO-driven blog posts for them.
A former day job. They’re a software company. My job as Managing Blog Editor / Content Writer was to create educational content that helped the customers who use that software be successful in their online course creation and marketing efforts.
Recognizing that innovation and entrepreneurship are blind to location, RuralRISE is a community of organizations that seek to increase the opportunities, increase accessibility, spotlight innovation, entrepreneurial and start-up activities that work in a rural context. I wrote a post as part of their promotional efforts for the 2019 RuralRISE Summit.
The Center for Watershed Protection
CWP is a small environmental nonprofit based out of Ellicott City, MD. They do great work protecting the Chesapeake Bay Watershed (and other national watershed areas as well), and they invited me to write for their blog.
I’ve been a part of the Charlottesville startup scene off and on for a while now. During that time, I attended 2 different Startup Weekends. One of the local organizers asked me to write about my experience for their blog.
The Literati Writers
As one of the earliest members of this writing group, my writing includes a post [no longer online since the writing group is no more] and a chapter for this book.
We Are Power Shift
I was chosen as one of the first Leadership Team members for the Energy Action Coalition’s We Are Power Shift movement. During my time on the team, I wrote a few posts for the blog.
I spent many years as an active on-the-ground organizer for 350.org, including being trained as part of their National Leadership Summit in 2012. After my involvement with the Tar Sands Action, I was invited to the White House for a press statement given by President Obama. I had the chance to write about the experience for the 350.org blog.
A true pantser at heart (one who flies by the seat of their pants), I’ve participated in the National Novel Writing Month pretty much every year since 2007.
