I’m a writer and risk-taker. I travel extensively and document my adventures on my blog, Driftyland. At Lean Labs, I write about growth driven design, inbound marketing, and agile concepts.

Where I live:

Wilmington, North Carolina.

What I love doing (when not at work):

Working on creative projects. All of them. I’m currently exploring interests in muraling and birdwatching, and I love thrifting for my Etsy store. I’m also involved in a lot of community theater and working on a murder mystery serial for my podcast.

What I do (professionally):

I’m a full-time writer and I work on our SprocketRocket sites.

What makes me good at it:

I’m curious and insatiable. Also, coffee.

Why I do it for Lean Labs?

I’ve never worked with a better team and love everything we create.
