“You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, and there’s still going to be somebody who hates peaches.” — Dita Von Teese
I was born in Jersey, grew up in Texarkana, TX, lived in San Diego, Boston, the Berkshires, and Brooklyn. I live in Denver now with my husband, Scott, and my dog, Darcy Buttersworth Wilson. We are a happy family.
For reasons I’m sure are explained by my childhood, I like to organize and make sense of things. I know the world doesn’t fit in a box. I know not everything has a category. My mind doesn’t always remember that. I can’t help but logically organize things. Ironically, this is one of the reasons my husband and I are still so in love. We are logical, problem-solving types. This does get in the way of joy sometimes so we make a conscious effort to not always be in the efficiency and analysis mode. I will admit Scott does call me the Organizer Bunny.
Other stuff I love:
- yoga (Bikram, Kripalu, Ashtanga, general vinyasa…I love it all.)
- cooking (my husband and I love cooking together; see recipes here)
- coffee (Gimme Coffee, Rockford Roasting Company)
- the outdoors / stars / camping / nature’s beauty and efficiency
- Scottie Hottie, my husband
- vests…I wear a lot of them in the fall and winter.
- white v-neck t-shirts…this is the only thing I wear in the spring and summer.
I’ve taken my enjoyment of making sense of the world by bucketing, categorizing, summarizing, and organizing into my work. I started out in digital marketing (consulting and in-house) and moved to data analysis and BI work when I relocated to New York City. I worked for J. Crew’s nascent Customer Insights team where we built their practice of analyzing their data from a customer and cross-channel (marketing and retail/online) perspective. I fell in love with SQL at J. Crew. I worked for Food52.com, a young company with badass style and refreshing content, where I build their data practice from the ground up. I now work at Automattic managing a BI and analytics team. I am happier than ever with my work, my team, our mission, and our creed.
Oh, and here is Darcy Buttersworth Wilson. You’re welcome.
