About Me

Self-study in management and technology as I persevere in a long-term job hunt. I love wordsmithing. Adaptive, collaborative teammate/manager with strong communications/UX/project management skills. Proven ability to develop, publish, and curate engaging content, including cross-functional projects. Experienced in shipping major software products (Outlook: Business Contact Manager; RealServer; Internet Information Server; and Visual C++). Especially adept at creative presentation of complex/emerging concepts. I'm flexible and grasp new concepts and products quickly.

I’m a creative problem solver and patient collaborator. I’m comfortable with ambiguity, and especially well-suited for managing startup or complex projects with multiple stakeholders from diverse cultures and backgrounds. My professional experience has been primarily in the software industry, but my exhilarating experience with the sail transport cooperative means I’m interested in bringing my skills to new domains such as energy policy, sustainability, and renewable energy.
