My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
An epiphany came to me last summer and put me on my life path. It was a long time coming, and so much has changed since! For a long time I was quite stuck in life. I'd been in the same non-profit job for 7 years, but wasn't truly fulfilled by the work. My personal growth had really stalled out as well. Somehow I had stopped taking responsibility for the course of my life, and that realization shook me. So I committed myself to moving forward again, to growing, and to making my life what I want it to be. It turns out that meant quitting my job and chasing a dream.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Shaking it up! I work full time as a board game designer and publisher now. I launched my first game design on Kickstarter this spring, and it went super well. My game comes out in a few months, and I feel very lucky to have an honest shot at turning this into a sustainable business.

Most people don't know, but there's a renaissance happening right now in board games (more on that: What's important about board games is how they bring people together around a table to connect with each other in a fun, new way. That's what makes games magical, that they help us connect with each other. Working with that magic is what I love most about my new career.

But the most important thing to me is being present. I meditate every day, and slowly I'm experiencing more ease in my life. Change is hard, and this grounding practice is essential to me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Food. I absolutely love to grow, cook and eat food. And it's always better when shared. The sensory experience and social culture around food make it one of my favorite things in life.

Detail-intensive creative projects. I thrive when working on them, and they play to my strengths. All the times in my life when I felt most alive and relevant, I was working on one. So I figured, why not feel that way all the time?

I love to learn. I'm incredibly inquisitive across a wide range of topics, and have become quite efficient tracking down information to satisfy that curiosity.

Being true to myself. Which means I am always growing. Listening to my heart is like having my own personal north star.

Most of these are more fun to discuss in person, and I just deleted all the lists I used to have here. Billy Collins is my favorite poet, and The Power of Now is the book that has most changed me. I adore a good story in any form, but I hold storytellers to a high standard. The role of story in our lives fascinates me, and I'm quite motivated by narrative in my life and the world around me.

Also, backpacking is one of my favorite activities. Communing with nature and friends is a fabulous combination!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Being more present. I'm working towards being more present without having to think about it, though!
