A little about me…
In no particular order – I’m a writer, strategist, problem solver, musician, and lifelong student.
I get excited when I can use what I have learned about behavioral economics and start-up best practices to help individuals and organizations communicate and increase their value and positive impact in the world.
I have worked broadly in the music, technology, and nonprofit sectors.
I developed my work ethic and entrepreneurial skills from my years as a professional musician.
A few accomplishments…
I have a degree from Berklee College of Music where I was fortunate to study guitar, composition, and improvisation with teachers including Pat Metheny, Mick Goodrick, Michael Gibbs, Herb Pomeroy, and John Scofield. My music has been featured on national television programs including: The Sopranos, NBC Sports, and 20/20.
I was a key stakeholder in the development of the first secure online music store developed by digital music pioneer Liquid Audio.
I’ve lectured at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, Sweden and written several articles for Berklee Today covering the digital music economy and entrepreneurial best practices for professional musicians.
I have held management and direct service positions in Wraparound and peer-support programs in both the Children’s Systems of Care and the adult mental health system. I have a longstanding interest in bringing best practices from the business, creative, and startup worlds to nonprofits.
