I am an executive leader in brand advertising, communications, technology, television, film and digital content with a history of excellence at every level. I have a wide range of skills in all aspects of business with excellent decision-making ability. I have led bicoastal teams, formed strategic partnerships and ensured business growth. I have adjusted to the changing technological landscape with creative, thought-provoking ideas and concepts. And I have led teams to build brand saturation and success for both internal and client efforts.
I am a producer of content and advertising, screenwriter, author, copywriter, and coach. I have a passion for the written word and the art of storytelling. I currently have more than a dozen projects in development for all platforms, including “Mistress of Rose Hall.” My true crime docu-series and book were featured on ABC’s 20/20. My digital book series “Un-Finished,” is based on my award winning screenplay and is currently in its 6th release.
I have lectured internationally and around the nation for the US International Gold Key Service, Promax, SCAD, MSU, UVF and Signature Sessions in Düsseldorf Germany and Vienna Austria.
I also bring a strong background in Broadcast Promotion, Branding and Marketing with client relationships at ABC, Warner Brothers, Amazon, and Netflix.
I have lead award winning work honored by Emmy, Promax, Telly, AIGA and was included in the Motion Type Exhibit in the Gutenberg Museum.
I was the owner, Chief Creative Officer, and the driving force behind FUEL, an internationally recognized, Emmy award-winning creative firm. I was responsible for forging client relationships with MTV, Cartoon Network, Buena Vista Pictures, The Disney Channel and Nike Films and General Mills, Target, and EA Sports. I helped launch networks such as OLN and Singapore’s SportsCity, and created numerous brand campaigns for Nike, Coke, Pepsi, Target, Ocean’s Eleven, TCM and Showtime (landing an Emmy nomination). In a successful 8 years, I grew revenues ten-fold and expanded to be bi-coastal.
I also served as the VP of Creative Services for SMT, a global leader for data and graphic integration for live sports and events. During my tenure I expanded my skill sets with virtual technology and social media integration to provide better fan engagement for clients such as the OSCARS, NASCAR, Cowboy Stadium, the US Open and Esports events.
I was fascinated by the written word and the visuals that told the story. Early on, I fell in love with the possibility of telling my own stories and leaving people craving more.
I weave brand stories for my clients, while I churn out original content that swims in my imagination.
