About

I live in St. Louis with my wife and our young son and daughter. My 25-year career has been a mix of agency content and brand strategy work, publishing, media, and nonprofit comms and marketing. I’ve kept a website like this for a 15 years or so, mainly as a public notebook of cultural items that have interested me.

I’m currently a Senior Director of Content Strategy for The Stoke Group. Our fully remote digital marketing and content agency, which has a core team in Utah’s Silicon Slopes, crafts smart, good-looking content for global brands including Adobe, Zuora, VMWare, Momentive, and Pearson.

Prior roles include Vice President of Communications & Marketing for Forest Park Forever, Senior Strategist & Content Director for TOKY, and Editor-in-Chief of St. Louis Magazine.

I’m a graduate of Marquette University (BA in English), Northwestern University (MA in Liberal Studies) and the nine-month Leadership St. Louis program (2018-19) within FOCUS St. Louis.

In addition to decades of non-bylined communications work for organizations and companies, I’ve edited four books and published hundreds of profiles, essays, interviews, and reviews.

Elsewhere, feel free to connect with me on Twitter, Instagram, or LinkedIn. Emails are welcome.
