By day: head of product and growth strategy at Publicis Commerce.

By night: find me somewhere in the midwest reading, gardening, walking Gertie, indulging in food and drink, brewing coffee over and over again, kayaking, watching cinema, or… crushing a beer at a dive bar while ripping through pull-tabs. Also important: I eat an excessive amount of tabouleh.


  • Currently holed up in St. Paul, MN with my partner and my dog
