My Approach

I help small business owners & creative people find clarity around their ideas, expertise, and goals so they can grow their work.

(And feel less stuck. And partner with other awesome people and organizations. And build a world that’s more accepting, healthy, prosperous, creative, self-aware, and generous-- I have lofty ambitions!)

You want to launch your new idea, grow your business, scale your products, write a book, and connect these things to the people who need them most. And you need a plan, support for implementing it, and a way to communicate your work online.

My Story Mapping process uses a combination of exercises and deep listening to gather data about you and your work and get specific about where you want to go. From there I make a strategic plan based on your specific needs. It may include recommendations for

  • Website changes
  • Utilizing social media
  • Rebooting your work habits
  • Partnering with like-minded individuals and organizations

Need new website content or a digital content-sharing plan? I do that, too.

About me

I’m a teacher, maker, writer, director, and producer. As a scrappy artist working on productions with tiny budgets, I’ve worn all the hats necessary for making things happen: writing press releases and grants and copy; coordinating teams; managing budgets; overseeing events. I am equally excited about the big picture and the nitty gritty details (and hard work) necessary to get there.

My feedback is designed to serve you. I credit the Red Eye Theater’s Works In Progress program and artist Liz Lerman (check out her Critical Response Process) with teaching me to give (and accept) helpful feedback. My suggestions and advice give priority to your vision-- the thing you’ve given your best care, creative energy and hard work to.

I love a puzzle. Creative work is exactly this. I get to take a good look at the the big picture of your work, and the smaller pieces (website, social media, messaging, work habits, collaborations) that make up this big picture. 

I see your expertise. My superpower is uncovering your superpowers. And making plans.
