A passionate advocate for long-term business growth driven by innovation, marketing, and IP development, I'm a strategic advisor who has spent the bulk of my career focused on emerging media and community-building experiences. I've helped launch some of the top performing feature films in their sectors and, as interactive entertainment grew in popularity, I led the teams that created Muppetworld, Dawsons's Desktop, and Playhouse Disney, among many other renowned immersive properties. During my time as CMO at Technicolor, I introduced new solutions for content management, security, and distribution, while concurrently helping to form the Digital Watermarking Alliance, co-founding the New Media Council of the Producers Guild, and negotiating that Guild's first corporate sponsorships. I've advised major international organizations, governments, startups, and individuals; helping each better clarify and communicate their position and vision.

With a strong background in emerging content channels, platforms, and technologies, I've been responsible for the launch and development of more than 30 businesses in a variety of markets. Today, I focus on helping clients refine their strategic plans, to better and more profitably integrate sustainability, community, and creativity.
