Digital Footprint

About Me

I am a profoundly curious person with a passion for communication, entrepreneurship, governance, and human behavior. That curiosity has led me to tickle a wild polar bear's nose, found me stranded on a grounded ferry in the no-mans-land between Belize and Mexico, and taken me to more than fifty countries.

With degrees in human Cognition and Communication, I have long dabbled in entrepreneurialism with a specialization in innovative approaches to digital communities. I have found career success in the commercial real estate, mergers and acquisitions, bio technology, and advertising technology industries. In addition I am a globally recognized blogger, podcaster, photographer, and videographer. I also enjoy delivering public talks and guest lectures.

I have been traveling since before I could walk. My wanderlust was cemented at the age of eleven when the family rented our house, packed a year's worth of possessions into four backpacks, and caught a plane to Europe. Two years later we struck out once again for a year of travel across the United States in a thirty-two-foot fifth-wheel trailer.

Since relocating in 2011, I have lived and worked in Copenhagen, Denmark where I serve as Head of Product Marketing for the Danish advertising technology company Adform.
