Trupanion Work

The Trupanion Breeder Support Program: Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show ad

Challenge: Convincing dog (and cat!) breeders – notoriously precise when it comes to caring for the bloodlines they steward – that they should recommend insurance to their buyers.

Aflac Pet Insurance, powered by Trupanion

Challenge: announcing a new group benefits offering to C-level and HR decision-makers who may know the importance of health insurance, but aren’t necessarily as in-the-know when it comes to applying that concept to pets.

Trupanion Careers Page redesign

Challenge: More than just a coat of new paint, the people ops team wanted a site that spoke not only to pet lovers, but motivated, tech-minded folks looking to make a serious impact in the world.

AJ Jacobs Interview

I interviewed New York Times Bestselling Author AJ Jacobs about his book, Drop Dead Healthy. We conducted a worry exchange and became fast friends, the kind that don’t have to call each other every day or ever again but still are definitely friends.

Winter Provisions: KidFoot #23

Woot Innovations: Knife Sharpener

I wrote a fun sketch to highlight the benefits of a knife sharpener sold on Woot.com. Our very indulgent product rep was nice enough to play along.
