Professional Experience

Think, plan, execute.

I live at the intersection of research, strategy and technology. It is here where I can inspire new ways for brands to connect and collaborate with consumers.

Always Innovating.

Living on the bleeding edge doesn’t mean recommending every new technology. I enjoy taking new opportunities and applying the right ones to a specific business, process, or opportunity. I enjoy meaningful innovation – challenge me.

Metrics Focused.

Innovating allows clients to take big steps but when it comes to daily, continuous improvement I believe in a data-driven, iterative approach that continues to drive towards specific business goals.

Planning, Research, and Digital Strategy

I have more than 15 years of digital marketing experience, developing strategies that drive business growth and strengthen consumer relationships with brands.

Social Media Strategy and Engagement

In 2009 I established the social media practice at Laughlin Constable, growing a team of experts in social media strategy, monitoring, content development and engagement.

Mobile Marketing and Application Development

Mobile is more than a device, our smartphones have become the hub of our digital lives. A brand’s mobile presence is expected and integral in a multi-screen world.

Content Marketing and Publishing

Now, more than ever, It is important to create and curate content that is useful and relevant to the consumer – brands are now publishers and have become media channels.

User Experience and Information Architecture

Designing an experience means understanding the needs and behaviors of your consumer so you can deliver an efficient, simple, elegant, and engaging website.

Analytics, Measurement, and Big Data

Success can be measured. From uncovering insights in Google Analytics or tracking attribution across marketing channels, what is have you learned about your consumer?
