I am a writer, painter, and strategist at Cinco Design

Story is at the heart of everything I do.

Because story is magic. It is the alchemy that happens between mind and maker, audience and author, and consumer and brands. Story is what moves us to tears, makes us crave, or laugh, or fight, or fall in love. This is a place where I share my story, musings, and the things I want to remember.

I live in Portland, OR with my boys, and spend as many weekends as possible heading for the coastline.
