Get to Know Me in 6 Fun Facts
During the 90s dot com boom in NYC, I landed my first job at Yahoo! magazine.
As a creative projects manager for Yahoo! Internet Life, I wrote sales sheets. presentations, and advertiser promotions for brands like Sony and American Express, and coordinated a film festival and a music awards show. It’s true, the city never sleeps.
I live in paradise.
After over 15 years in Maui, Hawaii, I still pinch myself that I get to live in such a special place. The nature. The people. And the shave ice, of course.
I own a tiki bar and restaurant.
It’s not all mai tais and margaritas, but I’ve learned many lessons from owning a successful small business for 10 years in one of the toughest industries. If you find yourself in Kihei, Hawaii, pull up a bar stool.
I edited books in an old plantation house office seated on the slopes of Haleakala.
In the cowboy town of Makawao, we produced 20 titles a year including a New York Times bestseller. I birthed books from idea to the bookshelf in politics, spirituality, and women kicking ass.
I worked for one of the founders of big wave tow-in surfing.
Confession: I’m not a surfer. But I did manage global marketing for Pete Cabrinha’s kitesurfing brand.
For the past 5 years, I’ve wrangled content that asks the question: What makes you feel alive?
I experimented with a variety of content at Spirituality & Health: blogs, podcasts, video, product reviews, online courses, audio, lead magnets, and e-books. I love making things that help people and has a greater purpose.
