My first post-college job landed me at a startup marketing company where I wore many hats: web designer, social media expert, Google AdWords extraordinaire, and blog writer. And right before landing at CBT, I was working with well-known business publications to provide them with content from thought leaders all over the world.

Spend my summers in Grand Teton National Park and the rest of the year traveling around the world writing about the places I visit.
Buy a new car for the first time.
Make the best lemon bars. Bring on the challengers!
It would be “direct.”
