I’m a project manager with a passion for community and sustainability. I live in the Potrero Hill district of San Francisco, which outside.in has called one of the top 10 “bloggiest” neighborhoods in the country. It’s also conveniently close to hiking and salsa dancing opportunities.
To help make my corner of the world greener, I’m using my communications and project management skills to lead a Green Committee at my condo complex. We’re researching various green initiatives, such as installing solar panels and electric car-plug-ins.
Weekdays, I’m a Senior Program Manager in the Community Help and Learning department at Adobe Systems, where I manage software documentation projects. The innovative, ever-changing high-tech environment always keeps things interesting.
Before high tech I worked in publishing, both as a freelancer and at various book publishers. At Harper San Francisco, I managed the production of titles in psychology, religion, self-help, and the environment -- such as The Bottom Line of Green Is Black and Seeds of Change.
My editing skills allowed me to transition from publishing to high tech, and now I realize that I’ve been using both project management and communications skills all along. For more thoughts on these areas, see my blog.
