About me. . .
A consumer-centric chief marketing officer, a marketer & merchant with a passion for uncovering, defining, and communicating the disruptive purpose and power of an organization. I like to push beyond the traditional boundaries to create unexpected results.
A thought leader who works collaboratively to strengthen an organization's and brand’s core principles to drive growth in an increasingly competitive and crowded marketplace. I seek to amplify the value of the customer experience, guiding positioning and create strategies with impact and purpose.
A team builder with a keen eye for talent, a love of mentoring, and a requirement for passion; one who embraces diversity at all levels to build world class teams. I believe in the power of a connected team charging towards a common purpose and vision.

WHAT DRIVES ME?
CMMO | MARKETING & MERCHANDISING | I love connecting with the consumer, whether through product or messaging. I am currently using my 30+ years of industry experience for a purpose driven US Navy command serving patrons around the globe.
CONNECTOR OF DOTS | This is a recent revelation...I love connecting passionate, talented, engaged people and watching the sparks fly. Success is when I see two (or more) people having an engaging dialogue, and I realize that I had the good fortune of connecting them
PURPOSE DRIVEN | I believe strongly in diversity & inclusion, the power of talented teams, mentoring & life long learning | I have always believed in these issues, but recently have started to think about how to migrate from passive supported to playing more of an active role.
LIFE LONG GOALS | Being a better human, husband, & dad | Sometimes I succeed, sometimes I fail, but I keep trying...
LIFE MANTRA | I have several and they shift from time to time, but consistently, "There is always a solution" and recently, "Keep the faith."
