From Heart to Run The Jewels, I've interviewed and written about a disparate array of dope music.
From Tillamook Cheese to Banfield Pet Hospital, I've been fortunate enough to pilot the social presences of some iconic companies. Here are a few tiny tastes of my work.
As MyMusicRx Senior Manager for Children's Cancer Association, I led a yearly trip to SXSW. In addition to capturing performances and interviews with some of the best bands in the world, we staged a fundraiser concert headlined by the likes of Aloe Blacc, Les Claypool, Typhoon, and The Zombies. Eventually, we partnered with the festival to bring the SXSW experience to Dell Children's Hospital, where kids and teens who couldn't leave the hospital were made to feel like backstage VIPs.
From pairing Aesop Rock and Kimya Dawson with 'Lil BUB to make sick kids smile, to breakdancing badly, to hosting Facebook Live in the interest of pet safety, creative video is very much a part of my utility belt.
I've written about business from the inside and out. As a freelance writer for The Oregonian, I've covered some of Portland's best businesses. I've also helped establish voices and narratives for startups, and authored thought-leadership pieces pointing out important trends and the best paths forward.
Over the years, I've been lucky enough to interview many of my heroes, from David Cross to Bruce Campbell. I've also interviewed a number of corporate clients for compelling web content, but these clips will give you a far more entertaining sense of what I can do.
If you don't like food, life is going to be long and unpleasant. Even if you love food, there are no guarantees. Either way, I've embraced my inner foodie and reviewed some of Portland and Vancouver's tastiest cuisine.
My brain works in mysterious ways. I love to come up with slogans for clients and other community organizations, and below are just a few of the taglines that have sprung from my mental soil. If you don't like puns, put in your mouth guard now.
I like elaborate costumes. I'm weird. If it makes you feel any better, most of these were worn on Halloween.
