I am a content marketer, writer, musician and songwriter living in Northern California. In a professional career that has spanned parts of five decades, I have pivoted on many occasions, from investment banking to pharmaceuticals, from consumer electronics to SaaS software. One constant throughout my career path, however, has been storytelling.
My latest project has been writing Me, Myself & My Multiple Myeloma, coming to booksellers everywhere in 2024 from Morgan James Publishing. It's my second book from Morgan James, joining the best-seller Immaculate: How the Steelers Saved Pittsburgh.
Over the years, I've frequently been a source for quotes from the national media on both the consumer electronics and retail industries, and I have spun my fair share of yarn as a contributor to a number of online outlets, including articles for Yahoo, where I published articles about the San Jose Sharks hockey team, and Salesforce AppExchange, where I write about sales and marketing.
A cancer fighter every day of the week that ends in a ‘y,’ I periodically chronicle my experience as a multiple myeloma patient on my blog at memyselfandmymultiplemyeloma.com. And, with life’s soundtrack constantly playing in my head, I also tour and record with my two-piece acoustic band, the Chronic Padres.
I'm extraordinarily grateful for my blessed tribe. When I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2019, my personal and professional networks gave me such a tremendous source of power and strength. It's one thing going into a fight knowing you have your tribe behind you. It's something altogether more empowering knowing you have your tribe right alongside you!
I thrive off connections and community. Please reach out. Let's build our community together.
If not now, when? We don't know how many tomorrows we have, so let's squeeze every second out of the clock today. Let's take advantage of our opportunities, and wear today out. And, as we go to sleep at night, let's give tomorrow a figurative tap on the shoulder and let it know it's next!
