I help startups and small businesses craft the strategies they need to grow their businesses. I get excited about understanding target customers, carving out a niche in a market, honing value propositions, building successful go-to-market strategies, crafting excellent stories, and launching products that truly meet customers’ needs.

I love working with scrappy teams focused on getting things done quickly and efficiently. I have taken many new products from concept to launch. While I have experience across most traditional marketing channels, I particularly enjoy employing unique digital marketing strategies and unconventional marketing tactics to get you the right customers at a great price.

If you are a small business looking to launch a new product or brand, improve your growth trajectory, or tackle a difficult strategy problem, I’d love to chat with you.
