I’m a native Los Angeleno who’s learned to love the rain in Vancouver, British Columbia, where I’ve lived full-time since late 2007. When I started out in the working world, I tried my hand in a lot of different industries, and had the most fun as a freelance production manager working on music videos and TV commercials. But after slaving away on yet one more friggin’ deodorant spot and stepping back as the director freaked out because she hated the guacamole on the craft service table, I decided I needed my work to align more with my values… so I moved into the world of purpose-driven business. Along the way, I picked up an MBA at the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley, where I studied ways to use business as a vehicle for positive social and environmental change, and I’ve been working in that world ever since.
These days, I’m focusing on writing, with a special interest in social enterprise and social ventures. I work with the amazing Lunagals producing G Day, and a few other interesting companies in the “socially responsible business” world.
