Welcome to mindbodygolf. What can you expect here? A little of everything involving food, music, golf. Sometimes musings on life in general. You can also see what I’m doing with food over at The Inefficient Kitchen.
Over 200 posts, 7000 views and 93 unique country visits (always amazing someone in Brazil or Vietnam is interested in my writing!) and over 1,000 followers. Needless to say, I’m humbled.
I’m an amateur cook….and I love that our two girls are taking an interest in how food comes together to make a meal, and where the food comes from. The golf part is something that is uniquely me, a passion I’ve cultivated since I was 10. A peaceful, meditative activity that continues to fascinate me. Three knee surgeries in 2014 kept me off the course for the first time since 1992. Food and content writing has taken over….but happy to report I’m back playing some decent golf.
I love music and feel that along with food, both are constants in my life that always brings joy and curiosity. Activities that keep my brain engaged and active are a wonder that never ceases to amaze me. Staying grounded and grateful is helpful. Not to mention the ever-present soccer activities! New to 2016 was becoming a certified Grade 8 United States Soccer Federation Referee and working 45 matches. I’ve enjoyed learning a new skill that keeps me active and engaged in a sport I love.
I’m also a PGA Professional in the Philadelphia Section PGA (United States).
In a nutshell, I fell into an inbound marketing job by happenstance, find I love it, and discovered I totally dig analyzing data.
When I think back over the past 20 years, I find that I’m a talented sales professional with a strong marketing background.
Running campaigns, collecting data, looking at trends, utilizing content and social media to attract engagement and truly make an impact with a business is such a cool thing. Bringing valuable, timely, inspiring and relevant information to a person or business that is “about them” and tells a compelling story, while at the same time providing a solution they need? Priceless.
Tell me your stories, your kitchen adventures, your success on the course. Most of all, stay curious.
