Hello! You are here because you are wondering if…
…you should hire me. I enjoy problem solving, technology, and connecting people. I am available for consulting. I am particularly passionate about projects that are focused on:
- technical strategy and implementation (trying to figure out the best technology or digital media solutions? need someone to assist in a vendor vetting process?),
- technical facilitation (need someone to run your online meeting?),
- technical workshops (need to offer trainings on Zoom, building websites, or social media?)
- technical assistance (need help finding resources, writing a plan, or applying for grants?),
- business development (trying to plan, build, or pivot a new or existing venture?), or
- community/economic development outreach and strategic planning.

…I would be a good fit for your board or committee. I love meetings. I know – I’m a weirdo. Wait, let me clarify. I love efficient meetings involving people who care to be there. I cannot tell you how many times I have walked away from a board meeting with an adrenaline rush fueled simply by connecting with others over the excitement of an upcoming project. I am particularly fond of projects involving technology, innovation, the arts, entrepreneurship, and economic/community development.
…it makes sense for us to talk. Why not?! I enjoy listening to project and business proposals, and I am skilled at asking questions that help analyze. I am constantly meeting random people and learning about a lot of random things. One of my favorite aspects of randomness is making connections between people and information. If I cannot help, I probably know someone who can.
