Here's a corporate-sounding bio for all of you myopic ladder-climbers that would dismiss me without one.
A forward-thinking innovator, I possess expertise and experience at the crossroads of marketing communications, business development, and technology.
I currently work for Mastercard, where I support efforts within MasterCard Labs focused on engaging directly with early stage companies driving innovation in and around commerce and payments. It's a lot of fun, albeit challenging at times. More importantly, I like it because I believe our charter represents the right way to treat people and companies. Everybody benefits. Sort of like stakeholder theory
What are some of the things I'm skilled at?
I'm a messaging expert with a focus on both storytelling and the ever-increasing participatory expectations of audiences. I build brands. I have a knack for translating technology to non-technical audiences, with a proven track record of success in initiating and launching complex strategic partnerships and cutting-edge marketing & emerging technology programs. A valued company resource, I've become known for my entrepreneurial mindset and enthusiastic style.
In the past, I focused on developing and executing forward-thinking interactive campaigns utilizing emerging technologies designed to deliver sustainable engagement for brands and agencies activated across all media. What a mouthful!
In a world marked by exponential change and evolution, success requires a combination of subject matter expertise and strategic guidance. I leverage both. Consistently.
Huh? Look, friend - things are constantly changing. I meditate at the forefront of change. It's a good fit.
In a today's professional climate, somebody needs to protect fragile ideas from corporate conservatism and myopic thinking. Might as well be me.
