Curious about my background – my origin story, if you will? Settle in, dear reader, with some tea (or something stronger, if that’s your thing – no judgement here) and read on…

I’ve been writing for the web since the ripe old age of 12, where I alternated between my first sorta-paid gig as a video-game reviewer (paid in video games, that is, which is all a twelve year old needs), and writing scathing op-eds on my own personal blog after the encouragement to start writing from a dear teacher. Including, at one point, a tirade against a tyrannical teacher that got me banned from the school computers for a month.

What can I say? I’ve always been a bit of an instigator.

In the rural Missouri town I grew up in, I was the kid nobody agreed with – but that nobody wanted to go up against in debate class, either. I always had a strong entrepreneurial streak too, which probably influenced the memorable time when as a thirteen-year-old, I was chastised for advertising a pet-sitting business that I had decided to run out of my grandma’s house without asking anyone’s permission. (Apparently, I didn’t have the knack for logistics then that I do now.)

I’ve been freelancing/self-employed most of my adult life, trying on this and that until I found a combination of things that best fit my skill-set & interests. Here at Bombchelle, I make systems/productivity/organization/all that incredibly boring sounding stuff incredibly NOT boring so that you + your biz can reap the rewards.

On my own, I provide writing/blogging as both a standalone service and as part of content/social media marketing services to companies.

Of course, I’m also working on a book on personal productivity. Yeah, I like to stay busy.

The bullet point version:

I have…

  • consulted for a startup that works with the Rockefeller Foundation
  • taught classes and workshops that helped creative entrepreneurs get more done with less stress
  • helped organize multi-six-figure launches
  • been interviewed and featured by other entrepreneurs & guest-written for several popular + awesome sites (see below)
  • spoke at biz conferences + events, including speaking at RISE Austin 2013 (see the video below), a Crave Austin event in January 2014, and being a CEO keynote speaker at the 2013 Houston-Galveston Women’s Business Center conference

  • an Amazon author page! Check it, yo. Along with a book that hit #1 in Systems & Planning and #2 in Entrepreneurship in the Kindle store.
  • a Youtube channel where I review project and task management tools, which averages 5,500+ views/month
  • seven eight eleven tattoos (and counting…obviously)
  • a Shiba Inu! LOOK HOW CUTE.
