I'm an experienced marketer and content strategist, currently leading marketing at Detail where I guide brand, content and product marketing strategy. Before that I was content lead at 1Password, and head of marketing at Sketch. I’m a trained journalist with more than ten years experience working as a designer — across print, digital, and UX.
