Howdy. I’ve always had a bit of an adventurous, entrepreneurial spirit.
When I moved to Los Angeles in 2014, I found myself as the lead on a production team for the first year of a new cocktail festival. A few months later, I was hired as its first Director. Over the next two years, I turned it into a marquee, multi-city event and put California on the national cocktail map.
After I made my mark, I was burnt out and ready for a break. In 2016, I parted ways with the festival and spent some time traveling through Europe, taking in matches at the European Championships. It was eye-opening and offered plenty of new perspective.
Once I returned, I moved back to my native Portland and started writing again. About anything. And everything. What started as answering one Craigslist ad slowly snowballed into a new career and now I split my time copywriting for hospitality and tech clients while covering real estate for Robb Report.
You’ll find some of my previous work at Travel Channel, The Manual, Thrillist, Harper’s Bazaar, and Observer.
Let’s get outside and talk about how we can work together.
