I’m based out of Los Angeles, but work with bloggers and clients around the world.


I recently discovered I’m pure love (and so are you) ❤️ I’m also a blogger, podcaster and content marketing consultant that’s worked with Fortune 500 brands and top startups like LinkedIn, Google, Adobe, Intuit, CreativeLive, Zendesk, Oracle and more. These days I’m also the Head of Content at Close.

Here are some of the places my writing is regularly featured.

I’ve had a lot of “holy shit” moments trying to sustain a profitable business.

Now, I’m sharing every lesson I’ve learned about how to start a blog and build a profitable side business on my blog and in my monthly blog income reports that break down every detail of my business.

My long, winding journey to where I am today…

Back in college, I invented this silly little thing right here.
The iStash.

I sold a lot of them online. A little over 6,000 in about 4 months.

I learned a lot about getting traffic, building communities and strengthened my content marketing skills from this first side business (even though it was a disastrous failure).

After the iStash, I grew Case Escape to over $160,000 in one year.

Oh, and that was while I kept my day job. It wasn’t easy.

And I haven’t stopped since.

My content marketing strategies have grown my blog to reaching over 4 Million+ readers each year. And today, I’m working on side projects like SmartWP and VeganTable, while advising on Vegan Anj.
