I live in Portland, Oregon. Yes, it rains. No, I haven’t seen Sasquatch…yet.

What I’m currently doing:

  • Freelancing - I do research for creative teams working on projects for companies like Nike, Upworthy, Lucasfilm, The CW Network and more.

  • Writing - I’ve moved the best of my business writing to this website. But you can read all of my business writing on LinkedIn—the good, the bad, and the ugly—if you like.

  • Product Development - The world of physical products fascinates me. I’m exploring ideas with the hope of bringing one of them to market.

  • Reading - I always have several books on a wide range of topics going. Feel free to recommend one. My current reads: The Boat Who Wouldn’t Float by Farley Mowat, The Secret Lives of Color by Kassia St Clair, 100 Side Hustles: Unexpected Ideas for Making Extra Money Without Quitting Your Day Job by Chris Guillebeau.

  • Playing Guitar - My goal this year is to learn a handful of crowd-pleasing songs well enough to play in front of actual humans, not just my dogs.

  • Painting - I’ve painted a little. I want to paint more. The lessons on Stewart Davies’ YouTube channel are particularly inspiring.

What I’m currently not doing:

  • Marketing Consulting - Did it for years. Now I’m helping creative teams with their projects. But I do have a free Learn Email Marketing course, if you’re interested.

  • LinkedIn - It was useful. Now when I log on it’s mostly spammy business nonsense. It’s just not worth my time any more.

  • Podcast Production - I’ve produced and hosted several of my own, but these days I’d rather be a guest. Here’s an episode from my stint as temporary co-host of The Campfire Project to give you an idea of my style. Have a podcast? Schedule willing, I’m happy to be a guest. Get in touch.
