I’m a hands-on, results-driven marketing enthusiast with for- and non-profit B2B/B2C/D2C experience in medical, footwear, and education industries in San Francisco, New York, Tokyo, and Portland.
Drop me in an environment where I don’t speak the language, don’t know anyone, and probably will get lost, and I’ll be perfectly content. I thrive on challenge and opportunities to conquer obstacles. It’s this flexibility, adaptability, and resourcefulness that has served me well—from teaching in Japan, to working trade shows in India and Brazil, to juggling numerous competing marketing priorities in a fast-paced, highly matrixed corporate environment.
I recently earned my MBA with a capstone project for Gekkeikan Sake USA (Folsom, CA). I specifically chose that company because I was thirsty to learn more about the local food and beverage industries. I embraced the opportunity to create a strategic marketing plan that required extensive research into legal, regulatory, and economic issues as well as sociocultural, environmental, and sustainability forces.
I attack my work with the fastidiousness of Felix and the approachability and humor of Oscar. I’ve got the curiosity and drive of Mulder and the logical, analytical approach of Scully. And deep down inside, I’m a grammar geek with a penchant for perfectly executed campaigns that inspire action, enthusiasm, admiration, and brand loyalty.
When I'm not working, I enjoy traveling, camping, hiking, and playing with paper, metal, wax, and fabric.
