Connection builder, idea generator, and tastemaker.
I am a sales, marketing, and project management expert heavily experienced architecting and deploying creative digital strategies for tech startups, universities, and Fortune 500 companies. I have extensive knowledge in the branding, digital marketing, and public relations spaces and have a decade-long history working in highly demanding management roles. In addition to working for two of Austin’s leading interactive agencies, HMG Creative and Mighty Citizen (formerly TradeMark Media), I have been a consultant to top-tier organizations including adidas, Whole Foods, simplehuman, and many more.
I am well-versed in the foundations of paid advertising, search engine optimization (SEO), and web development and excel at managing creative projects that leverage brand storytelling through visceral digital content. At former 3D printing manufacturer, New Matter, I led the company’s online marketing strategies, its retail and educational partnerships, and helped guide the company’s engineering and product development teams in developing next-generation consumer technology products.
I currently serve as the director of marketing for Heliogen – a clean energy company focused on eliminating the need for fossil fuels – where I oversee the organization’s marketing initiatives and its PR and sales strategies.
Every business, big or small, has unmet needs - many of which lie unknown. My job is to uncover those needs, prioritize them, wrangle internal and external resources, and implement a plan of action to reach and exceed newfound goals.
With over 10 years of business development experience, I wholly understand the importance of a fluid and profitable sales strategy. I’ve successfully helped launch, market, and sell consumer tech products and have also worked with some of the nation’s most revered sales leaders and entrepreneurs.
The most rewarding part of my job is the relationships I build with others. I pride myself on developing professional relationships that help further along the overarching goals of the organization and always make myself available as a resource even after the job’s done.
