Who the hell do you think you are?

The REAL Kellie Peterson

I’m Kellie Peterson.

I’m not:

  • the model/actress turned marketer for whom I regularly get personal email
  • the LGBTQ activist from Utah (but I’m a member of the LGBTQ community and an activist, just not the noted one)
  • the IT Manager at Kaiser in Portland
  • nor the Zoning Administrator for Cook County’s Department of Building and Zoning

But I am the Kellie Peterson who for the past 15+ years has been peddling domain names in one fashion or another. I’ve worked for web hosting companies, domain name registrars, and domain name registries. I’ve consulted for all of those, plus politicians, actors and small businesses. Now I wrangle domain operations for Automattic.

Originally from Chicago, I’m an unabashed Cubs fan and lover of architecture. I’ll always love my city, but I live a much quieter life in McMinnville Oregon. Before settling here in Oregon’s wine country I lived for a time in Albuquerque NM, Boston MA, Denver CO and St Petersburg FL.
