Think. Dream. Do.
A favorite client endorsed me as "strategic, creative and tactical - a rare and winning combination." It is a description that carries across my work in marketing, art and hospitality.
I believe in building relationships and trust by providing candid advice to clients on the strategies that best align with business objectives, and by being hands-on in the creative process that delivers results.
My work in marketing and corporate communications and reputation management includes developing and implementing programs for organizations at important moments of change: launches, marketplace shifts, executive transition, crisis, IPOs, divestures, mergers and acquisition.
I worked in New York and Washington DC for several years in consumer media before moving to San Francisco as a corporate communications counsel in a broad range of industries from telecom, home furnishings, education, personal finance, law, and wine. For 10 years, I was strategic counselor and, ultimately, Executive Vice President for global PR firm Edelman.
My current focus is with small to mid-size business, non-profit organizations and artists, to develop websites, blogs, email marketing campaigns and maintain social media communities that increase the audience for their products, causes and work.
My latest adventure involves creating vacation experiences at Sonoma Rosso - a home away from home with luxurious comfort and attention to detail that receives 5-star reviews by guests from around the world. The California wine country compound in the heart of the Sonoma Valley has two cottages, an art studio and an old stone ranch house with a colorful history.
Making art ignites different parts of my brain and feeds my soul. I create luminous oil paintings in a modern impressionist style and my work is represented in the collections of wonderful people across the country. Paintings are available directly through my studio and at various shows and exhibits.
