The Art of Balance

My career so far has been as humbling as it has been expansive, so I’ve had to practice the art of authentic storytelling. Within a fairly compressed timeframe I’ve done just about everything, such as working in a mailroom handling confidential oil well and petrophysical data, copywriting, managing a multinational strategic marketing communications function, managing 6-8 figure sales funnels & dashboards, to new product introductions for disrupting technologies. Respecting the dynamism and fluidity of consulting allows me to adapt midflight during project delivery while delivering consistent, measurable results.

The diversity of my own experiences are grounding. The beauty of the highs and the lows, the stark contrast of sweeping successes and leveling failures—they are all breathtaking. They all also serve as steady reminders of the potential that exists in our shared humanity at any moment. Sometimes, the trajectory is one step at a time, and other times, we make quantum leaps that thrust us several steps ahead all at once.
The Intersection of Creativity &

The Enterprise

As a business consultant and a creative, I have a knack for ‘right-brain’ and ‘left-brain’ fluency. I strive to cultivate balance by aligning creative ideation with structure and purposeful planning.Exploring how creativity manifests in the enterprise through well-defined organizational strategies is my passion—the spirit of a solutions-oriented, entrepreneurial self-starter, tempered by deliberate action and listening attentively to the world around me.
