My Approach

Gold_Foil_Rings_element.png

I’ve developed Swiss-Army knife agility through my decade of experience spanning the gamut of strategic challenges from campaign strategy to brand transformation. Agility is key for clients who want to be on the forefront. But my approach remains constant;

  • Leveraging the power of three: Strategy + Account/Client + Creative, Consumer/Culture + Brand + Category, or for me, leveraging my Curiosity + Photography + Writing

  • A willingness and excitement around learning a new process or about a new category

  • Strategy grounded in real, tangible insights where I take a critical look at the data and match that with my knowledge and interest in cultural trends, quantifying seemingly intangible cultural cues

  • A collaborative approach with internal teams and clients with an interest in delivering measurable ROI

  • A passion for guiding the expression of a strategic direction with the emphasis on it being well-designed and adding real value to the world

Guiding beliefs in strategy and life

1. Simplicity over complexity. Cut the jargon.
2. Our relationship with brands follows well-established human behavior.
3. We’re not reinventing the rules of marketing, just using different tools.
4. Not everything can be measured (yet) so let’s use insightful magic that comes from qualitative research.
5. We’re in a historically exciting and significant time of disruption across every part of life, from the brands we use to how we define gender. It’s a great time for change.
