Like many people in this field, I’ve worked in a variety of markets and organizations with different business styles and cultures, from large corporate enterprises to startups and industry associations. The one common denominator is that good communications helps drive change and move markets in any environment. Respecting the client’s culture and values, I work to create a communications voice that resonates with the targeted markets, turns challenges into opportunities and sustains market visibility.
