How I Got Here
I've been in the business for almost 25 years, and won local, national, and international awards for my work. More importantly, I've helped companies dramatically improve sales, reduce the cost of leads, and improve their brand value. My specialties are developing creative, yet measurable lead-generation and brand strategies for companies of all sizes. I am also an award-winning copywriter, so I have the ability to develop strategy and then execute on it.
