Welcome to the twenty zillionth redesign of this site… the only constant is change of some sort!

I’m a detail oriented generalist, but mostly a content creator, nonprofit founder, bird-lover, history nut, philosopher, and digital artist.

My favorite tools are my Canon 6D DSLR camera, Photoshop, WordPress, and the power of written communication.

I have a passion and a natural knack for Search Engine Optimization, which I’d like to indulge further. I also accidentally produce videos and viral content, which I’d also love to explore further. I love my fans and everyone that I’ve ever met because of the Internet.

Currently, I’m working at a 9-5 and learning everything I can about the fascinating business of real estate. Connect with me on LinkedIn!

I’m available on a very limited basis for all the services listed on this site including WordPress design and help, photography, content creation, and Search Engine Optimization.

My personal projects include:

  • TheBirdyBabe – my Youtube channel links to all my other media. I am most active on Instagram and have over 12k followers. I’ve made great “real life” friends off Instagram!
  • VintageReveries.com – My search engine optimized blog of history, personally scanned ephemera, and historically styled photos that I’ve taken. I’ve emphasized St. Louis history, which is fascinating!
  • AvianAssist.org – the bird rehome, rescue, and assistance nonprofit that I founded in August 2016, and which will officially kick off at the Strange Folk Festival on September 24, 2016. My partner and I are currently preparing the 501c3 papers.

AvianAssist on the backburner

I failed, wonderfully, attempting to launch my nonprofit, AvianAssist at the Strange Folk Festival this weekend. “Failed wonderfully”, because I’ve tended to learn more when things go wrong, than when they go right.

Launching AvianAssist with a photo opportunity at the Strange Folk Festival was overly ambitious for several reasons:

Random Reflections on My First 30 days (or so) Working a 9-5 in over 5 years

I had my first day working a 9-5 office job on June 29. It’s been a little over a month now.

I had a lot of good clients as a WordPress web-designer and freelancer, and with the burned out anger feelings fading into the past, I’m better able to appreciate all the wonderful people and other small businesses who were the reason why I “made it” for over five years without having a “real job”. I learned invaluable “soft” and demonstrable skills during these past five years, thanks to everything! The further away from freelancing for full time income I mentally get, the more grateful for awesome people and good I feel.

My main take-away from the first 30 days of working a 9-5 job is that this was the right decision at the right time for me to make. In accepting my current position, I do not have any qualms about going with my intuition, curiosity, and logic. It’s been a surprisingly easy transition in all ways.
