Firing up your brand
is one of the most challenging and satisfying things you can do. You want to create unforgettable, positive experiences that build lasting relationships — and move you into the lead. In our hyper-connected culture, there are lots of ways to have a conversation, so your content has to be smart, distinctive, and everywhere your audience lives.
Always fascinated by stories
that define a company, its words, and its actions.
I haven't walked a straight line, but a through-line.
Always exploring, writing, and creating.
I spent more than a decade with multidisciplinary brand design firm Fitch and integrated marketing agency Hill Holliday.
We helped CVS/pharmacy define a category, contemporized Gerber Childrensewear, created the gaming phenomenon Razer, set a new trajectory for GE's satellite division, helped Cognos meet its growth goal, which positioned it for acquisition by IBM, and brought global perspective to Liberty Mutual.
Social impact and social justice are important to me. I've lead and co-led campaigns, initiatives, and longterm brand creation and stewardship with Partners In Health, the Alzheimer's Association, Habitat for Humanity, marathon champion-turned philanthropist and motivational speaker and author Uta Pippig, and the country's largest antipoverty agency, ABCD — Action for Boston Community Development. (For that I moved inside.)
Expertise and passion
I'm in my element when working with people who are curious, open, creative, and driven by big goals and high standards. That combination makes me want to do great work every day. More about me here.
