I began my career as a copywriter at The Martin Agency in Richmond, VA, and then spent almost a decade in Switzerland creating international campaigns for global brands. Along the way, I wrote two books about Switzerland, articles and essays for publications like the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, Salon, Vox, and Die Zeit, and co-founded the Zurich Writers Workshop.
Today, based in Chicago (with frequent visits to Switzerland), I work both locally and globally via my company, Cross Border Content. I also serve as the Chief Content Officer for the Washington, D.C.-based The Brand Consultancy.
In my free time I train for triathlons, travel the world, and recommend candidates for local government as the Vice Chair of the Citizens’ Council of La Grange.
