INTEGRATED MARKETER / DIGITAL INNOVATOR / GLOBAL

SMILING B&W

WHO AM I?

During the course of my career, I have had the good fortune to work with some of the largest global media brands and agencies as well as start-ups and non-profits.

As a consultant, I provide expert advice based on research, experience, and deep insights. My areas of focus are: brand strategy, content – strategy and creation, marketing,  creative strategy and all things digital.

MY APPROACH

It’s all about flexibility and the needs of each business – no two are the same and neither is each new challenge. My client engagements range from brainstorming new product ideas, project work with a defined scope to becoming embedded in an organization in a leadership position.

 

MY FAVORITE KIND OF WORK COMES FROM THE CONVERGENCE OF HUMAN BEINGS, TECHNOLOGY, ENTERTAINMENT AND COMMERCE.

My professional background, International experience, and an MBA in Global Management  have given me a unique perspective on business and the world. I help organizations innovate and explore new and profitable ways of doing business.

EXPERIENCE

How can I help your business? Strategy development, integrated marketing, experiential, increasing brand awareness , sales, growing online presence, creative, content development and product roadmaps are a few of the services I provide.
