I take photos, draw, and build respected brands around the world.
My mission as an executive marketing consultant, is to help brands create + execute brand marketing strategies that share their stories, build engaged communities of the people who matter to them most, and curate valuable co-marketing partnerships.
Previously, I spent time at an early stage startup, Redkix (recently acquired by Facebook), where I led our brand marketing efforts as the Director of Marketing.
Sometimes I write about topics I find fascinating. I love to travel solo and take photos of amazing architecture or landscapes while visiting as many bookstores, museums, and coffee shops along the way. I also have a fun side project.
I love structured autonomy. I also love clever contradictions.
I delight in designing stellar presentations, and I tell a great story.
I’ve taken the stage across the US + Europe, speaking at a variety of venues including Oxford, UC Berkeley, and Harvard Business School.
I’m currently based in San Francisco, but previously spent time in Budapest, Seattle, Indianapolis, and a tiny town in WA you’ve never heard of.
I graduated with a degree in Journalism, and then took on a competitive leadership consulting gig where I traveled the U.S. and lived out of two suitcases for a year. A year as a full time road warrior was enough, and I accepted a marketing and advising role at my Alma Mater, ultimately running local and national marketing campaigns for 49 prominent student organizations for almost four years.
After a decade of marketing work (including four years leading global programs + partnerships at Prezi, Inc.), I decided to take a sabbatical to travel for pleasure, explore my creativity, and continue learning for fun. I spent time with family and friends, and took on a few meaningful clients, including eBay, Future of StoryTelling, UploadVR, and Q Designs NY.
I speak English, and a smidgen of Spanish and Hungarian. I've also started learning French after a magical trip to Paris.
I have traveled a rather atypical path both personally and in my career. Leadership consultant, to higher ed adviser and marketer, to running global evangelism programs for a rapidly scaling SaaS startup in Budapest and SF, to consulting for early stage startups and Fortune 500s.
One of the greatest strengths of my diverse background is that I have a deep understanding of how to work with, and market to, Millennials and Gen Z: the future.
