About

Eight Sentences About My Professional Life

I have spent the past 24 years exploring how language drives behavior. My life's work is understanding how communications strategies can create desired behavior in targeted audiences. Whether convincing a journalist to write a story, showing an employee why this is a great place to work, persuading a legislator to pass a bill or calming nervous stakeholders during a serious crisis, I believe that innovative communications can help any company thrive.

I am happiest developing communications strategies for complex issues. Utility deregulation, software development, chemical manufacturing, environmental engineering and financial processing are just some of the intricate areas of business I find fascinating.

I have been fortunate to pursue my career with some of the smartest people in the field, both as colleagues at various corporations and in partnership with the world's best communications agencies. I have led communications teams around the world and conducted business on six of seven continents.

I am looking to devote my experience and expertise to companies seeking to use communications as one key way to support growth and success.
