Hello. I'm a Calgary-based marketing and communications consultant with 20+ years of leadership experience. I've provided branding and marketing solutions to over 70 organizations in Canada and beyond. 

Since 1997, I've been fortunate to work with exceptional people and brands from all over the world including: Mandalay Entertainment (Hollywood), Pacific Century Group (Hong Kong), World Wide Corporate Networks (New York), CDS Consulting (Tokyo), Shaw Cable (Calgary), CGGVeritas (Houston), SpotCast (London), and Alliance Leadership (San Francisco). During that time, I've developed a strong passion and drive for building great communications campaigns that hinge on memorable messaging, eye-catching design and inventive implementation.

 

If you need someone who can get in the trenches and get things done, please consider reaching out. I'd love to hear from you!
