I'm a writer, author and poet (oh yea, I also have a podcast).
I came of age professionally during the 90s tech boom. I know I don’t fit neatly into one box or the other, but in the language of the world today, I’m a content creator, tech and science writer and narrative journalist.
I am an author and technology, science and arts writer and narrative journalist. My first book, Love, Lust, Longing and Truth was published in December 2017.
I’m a pen for hire and a strategy/content consultant to technology healthcare companies such as Roche Diagnostics and Silicon Valley tech firms Pivotal and Neura. I also work with marketing/PR agencies like Edelman London as well as tech law firms and financial companies such as Withers tech in London and NY-based funds company, Defiance ETFS. I create journalistic and micro content for these companies and more around the world.
At the same time, I’m a working journalist as a tech contributor at Forbes and Modern American News covering innovation and the intersection of science and technology with health, industry, environment, culture, and agriculture.
I started my career in the press office of Senator Sam Nunn in Washington DC and graduated to corporate communications at the Atlanta Market Center. I had several hybrid roles as a content creator for the in-house publication for the market center and publicity and public relations for market events which brought in more than 22,000 people from around the world each quarter.
I worked for the Department of Energy as a media spokesperson at the Savannah River Site run by Westinghouse, where I was responsible for media and community relations for the site’s nuclear facility and new glassification plant. I was a liaison between Washington DC and the site’s internal media team.
I went on to work at Harvard’s Judge Baker Children’s Center as the Assistant Director of Fundraising and Marketing to PR manager at Brodeur Worldwide on the IBM team splitting my time between Boston and Armonk, NY. I moved into a VP position at the telco boutique Seattle PR firm, JLM Partners where I headed up all European client activity including trade shows, events, and content.
In 2000, I founded Spilled Ink (Ink Communications), one of the first virtual PR and content agencies. Eighty percent of the firm’s clients were acquired by major tech brands including Google, Cisco, Vodafone, and Apple. The firm was acquired in 2014.
I have interviewed leading tech CEOs, scientists, astronauts and personalities including Scott Kelly and Leland Melvin, Astronauts; Niklas Zennström, Co-founder, Skype; Colin Angle, CEO, iRobot; Jane Goodall, conservationist; Kevin Costner, actor and director; Stephen Petranek, journalist and author, How we will live on Mars; Kate Swanborg, SVP Dreamworks Animation; Marcie Jastrow, SVP Immersive Media, Technicolor; Annie Griffiths, National Geographic photographer, and Chitra Dorai, IBM Watson. She has access to the A-list in science and sci-fi films and has interviewed actors, directors and producers on films such as 20th Century Fox's film 'Hidden Figures' and 'Atlita: Battle Angel' and National Geographic Channel's 'Genius', Series 2 of 'MARS' and the documentary, ‘Jane’.
After living in Europe for the past nine years, I mostly live in Boise, Idaho on a river with her beagle Henry and two very existential cats.
