If you prefer the professional adjectives-in-a-box approach, most people think of me as a ClimateTech, ESG, and sustainability paradigm-mover, marketing leader, strategist, startup advisor, writer, and the founder and CEO of Brightest. Personally I’m not a fan of boxes – I prefer circular solutions, closing loops, creating things out of nothing, celebrating life, and trying to make our collective tomorrow a little better than today.

So far that’s helped me get to know some cool people and contribute to Percolate, The Museum of Pizza, EasyLlama, SwingLeft, Sunrise Movement, Social Movement Technologies, Impact Hub, and a few other places with extra-buttoned-up NDAs.

When I’m not building or advising teams, companies, or movements you’ll often find me reading, enjoying music, traveling, working on design and photography, giving back, and occasionally building a company or a brand here and there.

Like most things I do, this website is proof I spend a lot of my time thinking about and working on technology and communication projects. Then again, I’m happiest when I’m creating, and given the value of time, I think the ability to encapsulate, educate, and accelerate human possibility with empathy and technology is one of the greatest opportunities of our lifetime. Personally, I still feel like I’m just getting started with it.

I get out of bed every morning because I want to build inspired brands and go after big ideas. I tend to soak up information and good music about as fast as I drink coffee, and I like meeting and working with driven, passionate, humble, caring, and curious people. If you happen to be one, drop me a line, I’d love to hear from you. I’m always looking for more ways to share learnings and build community in areas like advocacy, activism, strategy, marketing, communications, product development and team-building.

If you’d like to get in touch, I’d be happy to tell you more about what I’m currently working on or see if there’s a way I can help you be more successful. If you’re looking for strategy resources, head here.
