Welcome to Small Hands, Big Ideas! Giggling at the name? I actually do have really small hands and for real, I’m a big dreamer always scheming and coming up with new ideas. Plus, you won’t forget the name, right?
Thousands of Generation Y leaders, thinkers, and curators visit Small Hands, Big Ideas each month. We have fun, we keep it real and inspiration spins. Hold on to your Fedoras.
I started this blog in August 2008, writing about my new life and move to Boulder so my family could keep in touch (Aw, love you Ma). Things have since changed and Forbes has included me in Top 100 Websites for Women and Top 10 Websites for Millennial Women.
Press: Check this out to see where Small Hands, Big Ideas has been featured. Best Of: You can also check out the Best Of posts to-date to get rolling. Guest Posts: The rest of my guest post and writing contribution across the web are housed here.
I went to college in Burlington, Vermont (one of my favorite cities) and since I’m all into persuading people I naturally got a B.S. in Public Relations.
In August 2008 I packed up my car, job-less and house-less (oh yeah, with no friends on the other end) then trekked across the country (started this blog) to find a life in Boulder, Colorado. Just because. No reason beyond it felt right and I like risk.
Miss Foodie, Grace(full) Plate:
I also have a food blog: Grace(full) Plate. It brings me so much joy. Go on over, say hello, drool, peep restaurant reviews, learn about food news, or find a recipe. I am the co-founder of the Boulder Food Media group, I run Boulder Food News and am the Boulder (freelance) features writer for Eater Denver.
I am passionate, gregarious, irreverent and all about connecting people.
I am an adventurist and traveler at heart with a penchant for food, wine, laughter, sarcasm, my friends, my Italian family, authenticity, technology, being geeky, live music, snowboarding, yoga, design and photography.
I pride myself on living life as a responsible hedonist (where pleasure and social responsibility co-exist).
I like nicknames and writing witty lines in the ‘memo’ line on checks. I’m 75% Italian and 25% Irish and have dual Italian citizenship! Yoga and love are my religion. I prefer red wine and cheese plates coupled with depth-filled conversation. I love and frequently quote Nietzsche. I bust a move – in the street, in my office, in my chair – really, anywhere. Here are 20 random facts about me.
Sometimes I pretend I’m flying in the Colorado Sand Dunes (see below).
I like to live my life like this: “Buy the ticket, take the ride.” -Hunter S. Thompson
