As the Deputy Director of the National Cannabis Industry Assocation, I am responsible for communications, outreach, and education programs for the only national trade association representing cannabis-related businesses and working for the growth of a responsible and legitimate cannabis industry.
I have spent more than a decade in communications and leadership positions in the political, policy, nonprofit, and business arenas.
From 2009 to 2012, I was the Communications Director for National Journal, a multi-platform media organization known for its intelligent reporting and analysis. NJ is a division of Atlantic Media Company, which also publishes The Atlantic.
Prior to that, I was a communications consultant at New Partners, Inc., specializing in effective messaging, strategic planning, media training, and writing for a variety of corporate and non-profit clients. I was also a nationally televised political commentator, making regular appearances on Fox News, MSNBC, and CNBC.
Before moving to D.C. in 2009, I worked around the country on political campaigns. In 2008, I served as Communications Director for the U.S. Senate campaign of Sen. Mark Udall of Colorado. I previously served on the campaign staffs of Senator Chris Dodd (Ct.) and Governors Tim Kaine (Va.) and Chet Culver (Ia.), as well as on campaigns in Virginia and Georgia.
A native of southern Virginia, I am now happily settled in Denver, Colorado.
