What my business card says:

Senior Account Executive

What I actually do:

I’m a problem solver. I work with clients to understand their goals and then figure out how smart, strategic and comprehensive communications can enable them to reach those goals.

Marketing pedigree:

I started my career in science textbook editing but it didn’t take long for me to realize I cared more about stories than solvents. I’ve been in marketing and communications ever since, helping clients across the technology, financial, healthcare, non-profit retail and specialty chemical sectors tell the stories that matter to them and to their customers.

Most recent success:

A feature on the London commercial real estate market on

Remind me to tell you the story about:

When I pitched a greeting card line to Andy Cohen in the Watch What Happens Live studio.

Book I recommend to clients:

“My Share of the Task” – Stanley McChrystal’s memoir, which is a powerful commentary on relationships, leadership, humility and courage in the face of the unknown.

What I do for fun:

A variety of things, really, but my ideal is time spent with family sharing good food and good drinks.


Notre Dame, BA in English and Philosophy

Title of My Autobiography:

“Pun Intended – A memoir.”
