Intro & Background

Sometimes my mom implies that while I've been talkative and curious since I was a wee one, I was a bit of a late bloomer on a bunch of fronts. I like to think I'm still blooming. Some things I am, Dec 2017:

 

  • So proud of my little brother, his incredible wife and their tiny daughter that I think I might burst

  • Very in awe of my fiancee, Brian, who doesn't just have hobbies and interests but invests in them daily

  • Amazed that someone hasn't built slightly-higher-touch yelp for weddings & SO SUPPORTIVE OF wedclique/otterplan and opportunity to improve this kind of search - one women are expected to do without quality tools

  • In love with the Lower Haight but not thrilled about how the would outside of SF views living in SF

  • Pretty sure compensation has nothing to do with science and into digging deeper there
     

Resume

I'm a 'generalist.' I am curious about a lot of things and have learned about doing them or running them but don't have the depth of a specialist. I am skeptical of 'experts' from my Chicago / fine dining / attempts at fundraising days.
