Thank you for stopping by my website. I’m glad you’re here.
A little about me:
I use my business skills to create passion projects that build a better world. I’ve been called the happiest New Yorker, and I try hard to live up to that title every day. I live my life spherically, in many different directions. I’m an award-winning author, freelance journalist, biomimicry scientist, and product developer. I’m also an environmental, health, and arts advocate, as well as a theater and film producer. Inspired by ancient wisdom and modern technology, I’m a proud alumnae of the University of Pennsylvania (BA), the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia (MBA), and Arizona State University (Graduate program in Biomimicry). I’m a proliferator of goodness, an opener of doors, friend to animal, and fan of creative work in all its wondrous forms.
A little more about me:
My career has stretched across Capitol Hill, Broadway theatre, performing arts, education, nonprofit fundraising, health and wellness, and Fortune 500 companies in retail, media, entertainment, technology, and financial services. I’ve been a product developer and product manager, theater manager, strategic consultant, marketer, voice over artist, teacher, and fundraiser. In every experience, I’ve used my sense of and respect for elegant design to develop meaningful products, services, programs, and events.
While building a business career, I also built a strong portfolio as a journalist, novelist, freelance writer, interviewer, presenter, and public speaker. My writing has appeared in The Washington Post, Inside History Magazine, Natural History Magazine, the Biomimicry Institute, PBS.org, Royal Media Partners publications, and The Motley Fool on a wide range of topics including science, business, technology, health, education, culture, and lifestyle. I have also been an invited speaker at SXSW, Teach for America, Avon headquarters, Games for Change, NYU, Columbia University, Hunter College, City University of New York, and the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America. The first book in my young adult book series, Emerson Page and Where the Light Enters, was published in November 2017. I’m currently working on the second book in the series.
A recovering multi-tasker, I’m equally at home in front of my Mac, on my yoga mat, walking my rescue dog, Phineas, traveling with a purpose, or practicing the high-art of people watching. I also cut up small bits of paper and put them back together as a collage artist.
I bring together all of my business and creative career paths as the Founder of Double or Nothing Media:
• I craft products, programs, and projects that make a difference;
• I build the business plans that make what I craft financially sustainable;
• I tell the stories that matter about the people, places, and products that inspire me.
I look forward to the conversation.
