writer & learning designer
I research, write about, and lead workshops on the art and science of finishing. My coaching draws on self-help, social science, and psychology to help people finish projects they care about.
In designing learning for adults, I've created online courses for McKinsey and ?What If! Innovation. When I'm not writing about finishing, I'm a science writer for IEEE's Pulse magazine.
My roots are in literature. I have a Ph.D. in English from the University at Buffalo, and have published several poetry chapbooks. My radio pieces about poetry aired on WNYC and as podcasts for the Poetry Foundation.
I live in Seattle, sometimes walking gnome trails with my daughter and working on (or thinking about) my own unfinished projects.
