I’ve spent years on the agency-side, in the technology industry, with some of the most recognizable brands, executing channel marketing strategies; developing multi-tiered retail product launches, consumer promotions, and awareness campaigns; and creating online product training portals.

And it’s been my privilege to inspire and engage great multi-disciplinary teams of creative professionals by investing in the talents, skills, and creativity of others.
