I started as a writer, and segued into PR, Communications, Marketing, Brand andAccount Management/development, Investor Relations, and Issues Management. Years later I’vereached a point where I want to work for a dynamic brand and organization and introduce mytoolbox of traditional and digital media tactics.
About Me
I’m a storyteller, first and foremost. Or rather: I help people tell their story - the right story at theright time, with the right tools. Whether you’re in communication, marketing, PR or sales, it’s allabout the story you’re able to tell, and how you tell it. I’m also a relationship builder with senior-level client service skills, brand and media strategy.
