Hi there! I am Community Manager at Dribbble—the internet's best place for designers to share work, get inspiration, and get hired.

I've got my hands in a little bit of everything, but day-to-day I work on content for the site which includes our blog, Courtside; our weekly newsletter, Weekly Replay; our bi-monthly podcast, Overtime; and our social channels. I also plan events for designers and help facilitate Dribbble Meetups.

I've also played a large role the growth of community and customer support at Dribbble. In addition to handling support requests, I've defined and documented our process in a support wiki, and written community guidelines for our users.

In past lives I worked in public relations, focusing on risk and crisis management, was a Master's student in Interactive Media at Elon University, and worked at Happy Cog as community manager, where I cultivated meaningful relationships through digital publishing and around the offices.

Things I’m really into outside of work: dogs, iced coffee, fancy food, music, Austin—all of which are subjects in my ~fine art photography~ on Instagram.
