I'm a marketer by profession, with a multi-disciplinary academic and professional background.
From brand management, design and market research to supply chain planning, sales and training - I've tried it all - succeeded at some, failed miserably at others, but gained immense learning along the way, including my ability to see the 'big picture'.
In 2015, I founded Word-of-Mouse, a marketing solutions company that works with startups and small businesses worldwide to help them craft and launch their marketing efforts, with a focus on Digital channels.
I've previously worked in brand marketing at Mattel and Groupon -- more on that on my Portfolio page HERE.
Throughout my career, I've enjoyed challenging conventional methods and principles, and developing original, user-centered (and often effective) solutions to most challenges I've encountered. If there's one thing consistently evident in all of the work I've done, this is it.
I have a keen interest in social entrepreneurship - especially in the areas of Education and Women's empowerment. My stint as a volunteer teaching underprivileged youth remains one of my most enriching and cherished experiences to date.
I am always learning. I just taught myself to build a pretty neat functional website, and some design skills. Next learning target-mobile apps.
Outside of work, I'm a gamer, aspiring artist and casual blogger with a keen interest in psychology, aviation, classic movies and all things digital. I've also been a college soccer player, and a borderline caffeine-addict. I am also very interested in world history and culture, and pretty much everything vintage and retro. I'm a classic rock and old western movie fan.
If you have something you could use my help with -- are a great company that thinks I'd be a valuable addition to their marketing team -- or just want to connect and say Hello - drop me a line, I'd love to hear from you.
