Connect with me


I'm a fractional marketing leader focused on helping data and developer tools companies create marketing motions that feel human and prioritize end-user value (AKA leaving users better than you found them).

Over the last 7 years, I've focused on helping early-stage companies building for technical users stand up content, brand, growth, developer marketing, and product marketing motions (both in-house and at agencies).

Most recently, I led marketing at Linear and served as Marketing Chief of Staff at Census, where I led content, developer marketing, and brand.

I'm passionate about creating strategies and systems to empower marketing teams to do creative, genuine work, advocating for diversity in tech, writing literary fiction, and volunteering to support the environmental conservation of the deserts in the American southwest.

Before transitioning to tech, I worked as a political, financial, and healthcare journalist in my home-state of Colorado. I'm currently based in southern California and hold a Bachelor's degree in Journalism and Technical Communications from Colorado State University.


My purpose - in work and in life - is to help people feel seen and known.

In marketing, this means centering strategies on the user and focusing on the value we create for them at each stage of their experience with us.

Great marketing is cultivated by marketing teams and fueled with the voices of practitioners and experts. It should prioritize value and human connection over vanity metrics and hype. 


Strategies are rooted in the needs of the users they're targeting, not just the goals of the business. 


Knowledge is shared from a desire to help the user, not condescend or obfuscate the topic. 


It takes a well-oiled, virtuous cycle of learning to create strategies for an evolving audience. 


Great marketing doesn't exist in a silo. Marketing strategies should be created in hand with product and sales teams.
