Chief Marketing Officer

Every company possesses the core elements of a story — plot, characters, conflict, narrative, resolution. Some businesses just need a little nudge to uncover those elements and communicate them in a way that's unavoidably compelling. For more than a decade, I've helped large enterprise organizations, emerging expansion-stage companies, and smaller tech startups build and develop brand marketing and go-to-market strategies. I've had work published in TechCrunch, Inc., Forbes, Entrepreneur, VentureBeat, and Business Insider, and I've had the good fortune of working with companies like HP Enterprise, UBM, OpenView Venture Partners, Magento, Experian, Optimizely, MarketingProfs, Klaviyo, and BrightFunnel. I was also privileged to be part of one of the best marketing teams I've ever seen at SmashFly — building the brand, telling our customers' stories, and ultimately serving on a leadership team that navigated the company to a successful acquisition by Symphony Talent. Today, I head up the world’s best marketing team at Paradox — a software company driven by the paradoxical idea that AI can make recruiting more human.
