And The Quest To Become Kompleks Creative's Next Account Manager


A Brief Note:

Thanks for stopping by! I don't want to take up too much of your time right off the bat – but I thought I would at least put together a little something that shows where I've come from and what I'm all about.

During my three years at Lexicontent (which I've gone into more detail about in the two documents linked above), I handled nearly all of our new client and partnership calls, proposals, contracts, client intake, project setup and management, and a lot of other nitty-gritty details that keep a creative business running smoothly, in addition to a lot of the more technically challenging writing work that needed to be done.

Two years ago this month, actually, I was in the midst of one of the most defining periods of that work, when we were mentioned on a few episodes of a popular podcast (Being Boss) and I ended up with about forty phone calls on my calendar over a two week period, with graphic, web, and UX designers, and a broad range of other types of business owners.

I wanted to curl into a ball under my desk every day for a few weeks, but the intensity of that experience made me so much better at talking with clients and partners, assessing their needs quickly, and selling them something that would actually be useful to them.

Many of those calls led to proposals and projects, and more importantly, to great business relationships and friendships that are still important to me years later. Relationships are everything to me, and the things I spend my time on every day reflect that they are my highest priority.

I'm sure there's plenty more I could think to say, but this should be a good jumping-off point for a conversation if you think we should talk.

Until then, thank you for your time and consideration.
