Podcast Host, Unthinkable | Author, Speaker, Tinkerer

I host the podcast Unthinkable, write the weekly newsletter Playing Favorites, and develop podcasts and docuseries for mission-driven brands, authors, and entrepreneurs. I'm also a frequent keynote speaker, and the author of the book Break the Wheel.

It is my personal, professional mission to help others make work that matters -- to their careers, their companies, and their communities.

I see creativity as a form of problem solving and leadership. It's a means of raising your hand to lead and investigate and improve things, and I want to help others frame their work as such. That can help us see the work and the world better and differently.

Before becoming a content entrepreneur, I held marketing and media roles at Google, HubSpot, and the VC firm NextView.

My biggest ambition and maybe grandest delusion is to be the Anthony Bourdain of business storytelling :)
