I am incredibly passionate about making brands come to life. Eighteen years ago I was lured to the agency world from corporate America. Because of my prior experience of being a client myself, I feel I have the unique advantage of understanding what clients genuinely need. I get it. We have to be dogged in our approach and deliver what we commit to. But most importantly, it has to blow the doors off, otherwise what value do we provide? Since crossing over to the agency side, I have discovered this insane determination to be the best brand ambassador our clients could ask for, times 10. Quite honestly, I feel lucky the unplanned messiness of my 28-year marketing career has given me the authentic direction in finding the beloved needles in haystacks [aka the next big idea].

Where I Like to Spend My Time:

  • Promotional Marketing and Branded Merchandise

  • B2B + B2C Marketing

  • Brand Identity Programs

  • Corporate + Event Marketing

  • Retail Trends + Creative Concepting

  • Direct Mail Campaigns

  • Program Merchandising

  • Company Store Programs + Retail Store Management

  • Specialty Packaging + Fulfillment

Don’t be afraid of being different, be afraid of being the same as everyone else.
