Hello! I’m currently the Director of Content at Bresslergroup, an insight-driven product innovation lab in Philadelphia.
Design and storytelling are the two threads that run throughout my career. I’ve long focused on design in my writing, first as a journalist and now as a marketer. I also enjoy putting design in context by curating exhibitions IRL and on Instagram. And I’m proud to serve DesignPhiladelphia as a member of their Steering Committee.
My background is a blend of journalism, digital marketing, and publishing. I learned journalism on the job at Philadelphia magazine where I rose from Copy Editor to Managing Editor before setting out on my own. As a freelancer I contributed articles to many publications, including Philadelphia, Metropolis, Communication Arts, Dwell, National Geographic Traveler, and the New York Times.
Before going into magazine journalism, I worked in book publishing, at Simon & Schuster and Running Press. I’ve also authored and ghostwritten books on topics from the design of everyday objects to the life of Isamu Noguchi. And I’ve provided content development, content strategy, and digital strategy services to companies and nonprofits.
When I’m not busy with strategy and storytelling, you can find me hanging out with my family in Queen Village, Philly’s oldest neighborhood. Or I might be serving my neighbors (2nd Ward, 15th Division) as their elected Democratic Committee Person.
