Marketing and communications professional in Cambridge, Massachusetts

I am a generalist content, marketing, and communications professional who focuses on technology, business, and politics. Also a huge music nerd.

I moved to New York City during the depths of the great financial crisis in 2009 without family, contacts, a job, money, or a work visa. Some might say that this was not the smartest move. Others would argue for evidence of cojones the size of grapefruit. It is not for me to say.

I can say I have a BA in political science and philosophy with a minor in English literature from the University of Auckland, New Zealand. I have a decade of experience as a managing editor, and I've written for many publications as a reporter, columnist, and freelancer, both in print and online. I was also a radio newsreader and DJ/host for over a decade, and cruelly had a promising modeling career cut short due to a chronic habit of eating and drinking. I moved into content marketing and communications in 2014, and into Boston in 2015.

Growing up I captained my debate teams, was a qualified surf lifesaver, played piano, and was a record store manager, DJ, and event promoter. I played many sports competitively, including rugby, tennis, soccer, and racing motocross/supercross, and was also into snowboarding, hunting, karate, anything on or in the water, and most activities that could accelerate my long suffering parents' aging process.

According to my beautiful wife, these days I mainly spend too much money on food and drink.

"I didn't have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead."
