You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

Entrepreneurial leader and marketer: empathetic, open communicator, believer in diverse team building and thoughts.

I love to execute and grow companies in any situation. I've built a defining career doing two things: 1) launching new model products successfully turning around Ford Motor Company with little resources using innovative technology and 2) operating my own music production start-up to engage consumers and provide music they love. In all situations, I've always been about consumer impact and influential partnerships to spur successful growth in the face of adversity and change.

Simply put: I love building products and services that positively impact people and will implement the strategy and tactics to see them through.

All these experiences led me to strengthen my business leadership and consumer insight through an MBA as I pursue my passion with disruptive technology.
