I’m a native Kansas Citian but call Minneapolis home. The Twin Cities rock on many levels…except for the length of the winter.
Work-wise, I focus on the digital and brand marketing space with experience on both client and agency side. Presently I work as a marketing and digital director for a financial services firm, have a kick ass wife, a hilarious three-nager of a kid and a dog that things she rules the household. I’m a past board member for the the Minnesota Interactive Marketing Association, serve on the advisory board for SXSW and am building a digital & social media training program with my friend Arik. (Head on over to my LinkedIn profile if you want more career details.)
I dig live music but don’t get to as many shows as I used to because of the kiddo. I wish I was better than a novice guitar player. I’m learning to play piano (again). I love Kansas Jayhawk basketball.
And I am a Royals fan in hibernation. Scratch that. After the miraculous 2014 and 2015 post-season runs, I’ve dusted off my Royals ball cap and am back in the game so to say.
(And why is the blog called “Slim’s Pickings?” The site name is an ode to an old nickname I had when I was growing up. KC Slim in case you were wondering.)
