Since 2000, I’ve been a professional writer, video creator, and problem solver.
In 2003, I created the web sitcom Something to Be Desired (aka “STBD”), which I produced from 2003-2009. In 2008, STBD was nominated for a Yahoo! Video Award for Best Web Series. (We lost to The Guild, so congratulations to them.)
In 2010, with help from our fans on Kickstarter, STBD was spun off into a new series, The Baristas (2010-2011). Alas, the actual cafe the show was filmed in was sold and shuttered in 2011, so — like STBD before it — The Baristas never quite came to a proper end. (Yet.)
In 2006, I attended the very first PodCamp Boston, which poured rocket fuel on the careers of many social media pros. Six weeks later, I co-founded and launched Podcamp Pittsburgh, the annual social media “un-conference” which survives to this day, in the spirit of the Boston original.
Somewhere in the middle of all that, I became a marketer. That was a valuable learning experience, but I find that I prefer making to marketing.
I blogged here for years — and wrote hundreds of posts — but they’ve been retired as I find my way back from marketing to making again. Those posts may reappear in book format someday, as a handy guide (or cautionary tale).
I currently reside in Baltimore, but I live on Twitter.
