"Well, you must realize, Harriet, knowing everything won’t do you a bit of good unless you use it to put beauty in this world. True or false?"

True.

You may know me from bulb - an app for publishing and sharing knowledge - where I pioneered the marketing, business development and expansion departments, doing everything from designing and executing a marketing plan for the new app to stalking investors in fancy coffee shops and convincing them to listen to our pitch. It was really fun.

Before bulb I wrote for a business newspaper and before that I did marketing/PR for a debt settlement company run by a former ping pong champion who goes by the title “Red Bear.” Ask me about it.

I recently got back from a six-month stint in Mexico where I fell in love with Spanish, tacos al vapor and colorful living. Now I spend my time helping other people, projects and businesses tell their own stories. It turns out those poorly-designed t-shirts were right all along - life is good.

My specialty is tackling new or complex subjects and translating those into comprehensible language for other people in entertaining ways. I'm a champion of small businesses and interesting projects who have an important message to communicate to the world.  You can usually find me doing both somewhere in everyone’s favorite square.
