Some things I like: Interaction Design, Gamification, Theatre, Haute Couture Fashion, Google News, Blue Skies, Dexter, 30 Rock, Personal Finance stuffs, Sociology, Psychology, Travel, Singing, Cheese, Sleep. In the occasional year I have spare time, I perform in and direct community theatre, and take pictures. I'm passionate about creating engaging, honest and meaningful experiences, on stage or online.
I was born on Thanksgiving Day, 1983, in New Jersey. I grew up drawing things, performing & creating, then went to college in Chicago for Theatre to become a designer/director, realized this wasn't my professional calling, moved to the Bay Area, became a technology reporter, decided I wanted to be a product manager, but was a writer by trade, not an engineer, so soon became a community manager, then a social media marketer, and now a marketer for the coolest B2B company in Silicon Valley (www.Badgeville.com
My long-term professional goals are to one day found my own startup, possibly following a return to school to study HCI/UX, particularly the interaction design of learning and motivating positive / healthy behavior.
