ABOUT

I work with dynamic global organizations and governments to tell their stories in rich and textured ways — using content to shape and enhance brand strengths, attract new business, and illuminate strategy. Tapping into my EQ and eclectic career experience with startups and multinationals – across global journalism, media and corporate – I act as a conceptual translator and liaison between creatives and the business. Diplomatically and masterfully, I communicate big ideas and granular detail with gusto and purpose… and then roll up my sleeves to craft content that people want to interact with.
