Work History

My passion is blending my 25+ years of marketing experience with modern web principles to create high value websites that help organizations meet their goals. (I describe myself as “pathologically helpful” and I love helping my clients and colleagues succeed.”

My diverse background includes Fortune 500 brands such as Disney and The Home Depot; non-profits including the National Wildlife Federation and Oceanic Society; and associations including EMDR International Association, American Association of Endodontists, and School Nutrition Association – and many more clients (my current client count is 125+ clients).

I work with organizations to set the strategic direction for their website and online marketing by helping them get beyond the “wouldn’t it be great if” conversations to the place of “this is what we should do.” I offer strategic consultation on web development, content strategy, creative direction, and on-going web operations. 

I’m also a frequent speaker about web strategy, web operations and marketing technology (See this page to learn more). I’m an active member of ASAE: The American Society of Association Executives and currently serve on ASAE’s Technology Section Council (and have volunteered in other roles for ASAE).

Awards

To quote an old client “I don’t do marketing to win awards, I do it to sell power tools.” (You can guess which client that was.)

So as a rule of thumb, I don’t enter award competitions. That being said… some of my work is “award winning.” Here is some of that recognition.
