What I Do

My talents

Find the Story.

We all know that stories are one of the best ways to communicate. Your ideas stick better. People empathize and grasp your perspective.  And people are more willing to trust and take risks. I’ve spent 15 years crafting stories. From large brands to kids on the Jersey Shore.

Connect.

We are all human. Over my career I’ve learned to build and foster relationships. From co-workers to clients to executives, every stakeholder brings real contributions. Through listening and understanding, I connect with people to solve problems and lead teams.

Create Value.

When people have a vision to guide them and the confidence that comes from trust, good things happen fast. People want to represent great products and services. Clients and customers instinctively see the benefits. I love creating value for companies through creating strategies, practicing servant leadership and crafting stories.
