Welcome to my site. I’m grateful you’re here.

You can expect a daily dose of short stories (and the occasional really long, meandering one) in the messy intersection of entrepreneurship, marketing, personal, family, wellness, and my own path towards living a better story.

Because Lord knows, I’m still on my own…
