My hands have always been in a lot of projects and I’m always trying and testing new things. It’s a big reason why I’ve never had it easy telling folks what I do. The most concise explanation I can give you is that I’m a Filmmaker, a Risk-taker, and a Cake-Baker… which is exactly what I put on my business card.
What I’ve done before:
I’ve had a lot of identities over the years: A marketer, a mother, a wife, a barista, a model, a fashionista, an entrepreneur, a creatives coach, a cocktail waitress, a truck driver, a college dropout, a mensa member, an interested participant in life.
What I’m Doing Now:
Currently I’m working on turning my award winning documentary short, Life In Perpetual Beta, into a series, writing a book about what it took to make it, and any one of the following things:
Boardmember at EverPurse
Boardmembering at the awesome NFP Hollaback.org
Running a small video production company: The Optimist Lens
Organizing a conference designed to help people pitch effectively: Pitch Conference
Running the CWDevs, a Chicago organization that matches women programmers and women who want to learn to program through classes and special events.
When I’m not doing any of the above you can find me speaking at events, crashing private parties, making art out of duct tape, and discovering the wonders of Chicago with my three precocious children.
What I Plan on Doing in The Future:
