Hello. I’m a senior business leader who's equal parts strategist, communicator, and digital media producer.

 

I help companies improve internal and external stakeholder touchpoints across all areas of the business.

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 track record for building successful communications initiatives hinging on memorable messaging, distinctive design, and inventive implementation.
 

If you need a senior leader who can get in the trenches and propel your project to success, please reach out. I'd love to hear from you.
