You Should Know About Me

Key Strengths

Marketing • Operations • Business Development • Digital Strategy • Entrepreneurship • Startups • Strategic Partnerships • mobile devices

Key Accomplishments

Devised and executed business strategies for Scripps Networks Interactive, Warner Bros., NBC / Time Warner / Cablevision JV, Demand Media and Machinima.

I'm a hands on digital leader with a track record of building, inspiring and guiding teams around ideas and innovation—driving growth through strategy, partnerships and revenue acceleration. Combining expertise in business development and monetization with strong marketing, product and operational acumen I have launched and grown divisions for multinational media companies (Warner Bros., Scripps Networks Interactive, etc) and built venture-backed startups.

Outside the office, I mentor promising young women who are readying for higher education and future careers.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I bring experience, passion, drive and a wealth of operating experience to a founding team.

As an Advisor

I'm quick to assess a company's team, product, product-market fit, business, growth and monetization strategies. Time is precious for entrepreneurs, so I tend to be very direct with guidance as a means to help founders and founding teams move their companies forward.
