Building Communities One Cause At A Time
With over ten years' leadership experience, I help non-profit and for-profit organizations outperform their competitors, acquire needed resources, and helping them find their online and offline voice through determining a central mission or cause.
I work to help build communities one cause at a time through traditional engagement methods (networking, special events) and online channels. My background involves various levels of non-profit administration such as fund raising/grant writing, special event planning, and community mobilization.

Although I maintain connections with the non-profit/social good community through Chicago Net Tuesday, I am currently freelancing in Chicago, Illinois. I also blog about comics, television, and pop culture at Blog THIS, Pal! as well as social media and non-profits for One Cause At A Time. I also write a monthly column and podcast weekly for Comic Related, and blog about tech and non-profits/social good for Chicago Now's One Cause At A Time and the Sherlock Holmes-themed Baker Street Blog. I also organize the monthly Chicago Geek Breakfast.
