BECAUSE BRAVE BRANDING BUILDS BUSINESS
1. FOR BRAND BUILDING: I help smart, idealistic marketers and entrepreneurs build authentic, bold and unabashed brands. Then I help them leverage those brands to build their bottom line.
2. FOR BUSINESS BUILDING: Here's what to ask anyone who wants you to spend your money with them on branding and marketing: 'What about results?' Check my case studies. You'll see results in every marketing and sales support channel, for brands and businesses of every size and segment.
3. FOR THE FUN OF IT: My job? Make clients happy. Not just happy with R.O.I. but with the motivation and inspiration that heartfelt creative branding, marketing and idea creation bring to any enterprise.

I earned my stripes developing innovative branding and integrated marketing programs for clients like Frito-Lay, Pepsi, Coca-Cola, Kraft, P&G, Unilever, Microsoft, Anheuser-Busch, Ford, GM, Discovery Networks and many more.
I've worked with clients both directly and while serving at blue-chip agencies like Tracy-Locke, EuroRSCG Impact, Momentum, 141 Worldwide and Frankel/Arc, winning multiple industry awards like the One Show and BAA Reggies.
I've brought that big-account expertise to bear on the challenges confronting small to mid-sized enterprises and startups, too, helping them develop strategies and tools that put them on equal footing with larger competitors.
I'm a gearhead (born and raised in Detroit!), compulsive autodidact and media nerd, a graduate of Michigan State University, and split time between Los Angeles and Chicago.
