I’m working on one of these things right now:
Played a ton of live outdoor shows recently – 6 performances over 8 weeks, which is unusual for me. Here’s a sample in the form of the “live” performances I’ve been doing in my attic studio: Solo | Shorts | Band. Back in the studio to finish up our second record (The Rockmores) and I’m working on a new solo record too.
Consider the Source is my new project that audits the way we consume, share, and produce media. This project includes live performances, selected workshops, with early access and exclusive episodes.
Marketing Without the Marketing is about respectful and ethical ways to build an online audience. A recent milestone was my 200th (!) episode: The Digital Representation of You. I feel like I’ve run out of steam for a bit, but I’m working on some new episodes now.
I teach a course at Emerson College called Fundamentals of Content Strategy. It is a project-based grad-level course that I designed, based on the stuff that I do in practice with my own clients. My 2021 students were a great group, and I’m just starting to think about changes to my Spring 2022 course.
I serve as a board member and volunteer at a small organization called Boston For All. We are an activist group that runs a series of community events – 100% of all money raised goes straight to the nonprofit organizations we support. We are just now getting back to (cautiously) running in-person events, which has been great.
I’m a practitioner. I run my own business called Control Mouse Media, LLC, helping clients build their audience using content. I do a mix of writing, production, strategy, and training. Though a lot of my work happens behind the scenes, here are some projects of note:
- I produce the successful podcast Everyday Sublime by Josh Summers (and built his entire site)
- I helped write and edit this cookbook, Vegan Chocolate Treats (affiliate link)
- I wrote all the Web copy for this site, including the detailed product pages: Bixahuman
- Due to my SEO efforts, this single post has been viewed over 250,000 times
Derek Sivers came up with this concept (a “now” page), and my page is included in his collection.
