I’ve worked in digital media my entire professional career, first at LexBlog, then at the Seattle Mariners, and now back at LexBlog as Director of Product. It’s what I’ve done for more than 15 years, and it’s what I’m passionate about.
A journalist by training, courtesy of the University of Montana’s fine program, my focus has always been on using modern tools to apply that expertise. It started with blogging on UM sports while in Missoula, working summer and winter breaks and LexBlog as we built out a network of publications from the largest law firms in the world.
After a decade at LexBlog, my digital endeavors—including writing on SB Nation’s Lookout Landing—landed me my dream job, being part of the Digital team at the Seattle Mariners. On top of running social accounts on day-to-day basis, highlights include starting a first-of-its-kind podcast with GM Jerry Dipoto, producing narrative-driven videos, providing social training to players and delivering said players the content they were looking to post.
Oh, and working at a ballpark. Being able to take an afternoon break and head down to the clubhouse and out to batting practice was pretty damn great.
After four years with the M’s, it’s back to where it all started—guiding LexBlog and its clients on digital publishing.
I’m a big fan of those Mariners and—having grown up in Wisconsin—the Packers, too. I love Seattle and all it has to offer, from neighborhood pinball spots to a vibrant craft beer scene to unmatched natural beauty. I enjoy jogging, skiing and riding around on an ebike with my sheepadoodle, Grinnell, on the back—my fiancé, Michaela, by my side.
