Who am I?
I’m a Marylander through and through. I love Chesapeake Bay Blue Crabs and UTZ Potato Chips. Yes, Old bay goes on everything. It’s Bal-d-imore not Bal-t-imore. It’s wa-r-sh not wash. And seeing crab cakes on out-of-state menus makes me chuckle.
What I do?
I’m a brand builder, content strategist and growth marketer who loves fresh ideas, ambitious challenges and fast-paced work environments. I’m strategic and tactical, and I care about tangible results and the exceptional work that goes into getting them.

Outside of Work Life
I love travel! I’ve visited 20-some countries and counting. Recent ventures include South Korea, Israel and Jordan. Future ventures include Guatemala, New Zealand and Australia.
To support my travel habit, I Airbnb my adorable A-frame, hi-A-tus. Maintaining my rental has evolved into a hobby of sorts over the last two years. I’m always striving to streamline and improve the guest experience. I’m currently working on a blog that provides special offers, recommendations and local insights to my Airbnb guests.
