Mr. Actual Poet

About Me:

So you want a poet? Until my mid-30s, I was a professional poet, earning my living through live shows, college lectures, and book sales. While I’ve since settled in for a career in ecommerce (mostly as a buyer/inventory planner), I still run a small press that publishes anthologies and first-time authors. I bring an editor’s precision to my work.

Title: Senior Tutor

Big Life Wins:

I grow online sales: Grew Amazon revenues 31% in 2019, 24% in 2020, and 26% (annualized) in 2021. Grew non-Amazon orders 726% in 2020 (from <$10K/month to $52K/month).
I make good books: Our crowd-sourced poetry anthology was a #1 Amazon bestseller in 2014 and was featured on San Francisco's NPR affiliate.

Post MBA Goal:

I’d like to do ecommerce management for a larger company. While my proven ability to grow Amazon sales is perhaps my biggest strength, my passion is helping companies take charge of their destinies by growing on ecommerce platforms beyond Amazon.
