Speaking, Writing & Logistics Accomplishments
When I was in college, my professor used to ask "what's the difference between a large pizza and a theoretical mathematician? ...a pizza can feed a family of four."
Welp, that's me! I graduated from the University of Wisconsin - Madison with a degree in Theoretical Mathematics, and a minor in Anthropology. I began my career as a technical writer with a nutritional chemistry laboratory. Basically, I digest information (pun intended) from all around the planet and rewrite the rule books that scientists use to test food samples. If you've eaten it, I've probably played a part in that food's safe manufacturing process! This is a massive team effort - which means I communicate with people of all different backgrounds and education levels both globally and on a daily basis. Communication is an art form I have been in love with since I was a pre-teen poet.
I published my first book, The Chrome Chronicles, in May 2019 with help from my friends over at Pole and Performing Art. It is a curated collection of pole dancers from the Midwest that celebrates and encapsulates the vibrant pole dancing community as a snapshot in time. Click here to purchase!
I gave my first talk around the same time this book came out at POLETalks - a TED style talk in Chicago that is focused on topics that loosely fall into the category of pole dancing. You can view my talk on becoming a professional artist here. Now, I practice the orating tradition emceeing local cabaret shows and producing my new podcast, Tranquili-Tease and my new tutorial series, The Educational Ecdysiast.
And, lastly but not leastly - all copy for all shows I produce, as well as the copy on this website, are written by yours truly.
