A creative marketing leader with 15+ years of experience helping brands and non-profit organizations reimagine their brand strategy, develop effective marketing campaigns, and design award-winning digital platforms.
I’ve been honored to work across the globe with brands such as Nike, Levi’s, Caterpillar, Visa, United Nations World Food Program, and Team GB from London 2012 to Rio 2016 Olympic Games. A problem-solver by trade and a creative at heart, I pride myself on combining consumer understanding and industry insight with business acumen to provide highly effective strategies and innovative brand experiences.
My biggest passion is the beauty of this planet and the desire to protect it. As a citizen of this earth, I believe we need to give more than we take. For those who can, we need to leave this world a better place than how we found it. My desire is to bring together creativity, empathy, and strategic thinking to understand the human behavior which is leading to our planet’s destruction and identify solutions to change our behavior and relationship with the planet for the better.
The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) has been on the frontlines of the world’s worst hunger crises, fighting hunger and famine since 1962. Reporting into the CMO, my role was to build awareness, action and support within the US market and raise over 8 figures in donation revenue to support WFPs live saving programs.
