Had some fun on LinkedIn


The LinkedIn homepage is notorious for its cringey, ego-filled, almost-certainly-fake stories of relentless hustle in the face of rejection, business advice guaranteed to make you millions, and complete non sequiturs you can't help but laugh at. All written as single-sentence paragraphs, one line at a time.

So I decided to repurpose some of these tropes and create ridiculously over-the-top LinkedIn posts that no one could possibly take seriously (or so I thought).

I see it as a part guerilla theater, part performance art piece, part anarchy by way of satire. We'll see how this goes ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Wrote about Little Caesers' underrated marketing genius


Sent out the second issue of my personal newsletter and riffed on the ways we often overthink copywriting by trying to invent new words—and how a national pizza chain scored some timeless positioning and messaging for its flagship product by just relying on two common adjectives.

Published week one at a new job


It can be easy to get bogged down overwhelmed in onboarding the first week on a new job, so I had a personal goal to publish at least something external-facing in my first week to push myself and get some momentum going. I was able to create a blog post showing how to add badges on Polywork (a common question we get on social) as well as help launch a few small, fun social campaigns for our community.
