A decade of experience crafting real, distinctive, trusted content.

A founding member of food site CHOW/Chowhound (acquired by CBSi in '06),  I spent 8 years building the site into a robust online presence (that 10M people visited a month). 

This is definitely the happiest man you'll see today.

A short documentary I produced for the site, The Soda Pop Obsessive, was nominated for an Emmy Award in 2010.

In 2013 I joined Scripps Networks to help build their first video-first initiative, ulive.com. We experimented with ways to get online viewers more deeply engaged with the shows they loved from the Food Network, HGTV, the Cooking Channel, and more. The site averaged 3M views just 6 months post-launch.

Hands-on Startup Experience

Since 2014, I've worked at exciting, rapidly evolving early-stage startups focusing on mobile technologies and marketplace economies.

I never expected to find myself driving an RV on CNN. Yet here I am, representing a great brand.

I was a Content/Product Lead of Last Guide Company, the first Project Manager/Producer of used car marketplace Shift, and Interim Director of Product at Oakland-based startup Babylist

 In June of 2016, I joined the coolest new marketplace for outdoor recreational travelers, Outdoorsy, as Director of Content. It's thrilling to be a part of the team creating the fast-growing network connecting RV owners and renters.
