I do a little bit of everything. I write up strategy docs, test out new technology, strategize with our fun clients & work with the team to build a better Appreciation Engine. I love that my job never gets boring and the people I get to work with are amazing. Brilliant!
My startup bug hit when I worked for five years at an internet start up in Victoria, Abebooks. With that amazing team I discovered how technology could really bring people together & make people money. I was hooked. In 2002 I moved to Wellington, NZ to work and consult in digital and web. After founding AE I ran the LA office for 5 years and now I’m back in beautiful BC. I’m lucky that I’ve found a job that combines all my loves – the web, writing, community and media.
