Using a mix of tools, insight, and originality—acquired from many years in advertising, film and academia (specifically: applied anthropology, narrative writing and psychology)—I help people, brands and organizations fascinate their audiences. The deliverables might be different: a white paper, a catchy brand name, podcast productions, but they all involve deep thought, wordsmithing, and uncovering hidden angles.
The methodology comes from brains greater than my own. I’ve had exceptional mentors and studied with outstanding professors, graduating with honors in Anthropology (BA) and Urban & Regional Studies (BSc) from one of the Ivy League schools. Afterwards, I was a Marie Curie Fellow and received a Research MA (with distinction) from University College London.
It’s another way of saying I was dedicated to reading thick technical books, deciphering research and writing hundreds of papers (while inhaling coffee), but it paved the way to becoming an expert on culture, communication and organizations.
When I’m not helping people make themselves or their brands more irresistible, I devour fiction, art and Tex-Mex, and am known to preach the virtues of high-end tequila. In other words, who I am in my professional life is the same off-hours because whether coaching or editing, diving into literature or sipping jalapeño margaritas, all have the magical ability to transport.
As for enchanting: I love Europe, my residence of 20+ years, but am always eager to go home and be immersed in West Texas scenery. The vast landscape and breathtaking skies provide a natural backdrop for reflective clarity. My job is to bring that same sense of introspection, awe, and inspiration to my clients to further expand horizons and opportunities. (It’s the reason you find desert imagery throughout this website).
Thank you for taking the time to read. I look forward to working with you.
