I inspire organizations
to embrace innovative campaigns through passion and leadership
Throughout my career, I've had the good fortune to serve in leadership roles for companies and organizations that believe people are the most valuable resource we have. I love inspiring multicultural teams across the globe and learning from others as much as I try to lead them. High standards, a knack for details, deep respect for others and a self-effacing humor is what I bring to the table.
My favorite experiences have been with entrepreneurial start-ups or start-up divisions that put a premium on innovation, pushing the envelope to tell stories and offer engagement opportunities in brand new ways. My default mode is to take charge of ambitious projects and engineer them for success, armed only with a game-changing idea, a talented team and good old-fashioned hard work.
I believe deeply in immersive storytelling: using relatable, compelling language and images to trigger something inside that makes average people want to engage. Effective communication is about them, not us. I believe we humans can chart a bold new course to secure a more sustainable planet as long as we challenge the cultural norms of greed, waste and overconsumption. Through intelligent culture campaigning, we can alter mindsets and behaviors to bring about a whole new world.
