It all began with coleslaw. At the renowned Jaffe's Deli in Boston I learned that there is an art to everything. Even coleslaw. Combining cabbage, vinegar and mayo in just the right proportions to create perfection. Naturally, it was on to a creative path from there.
From global ad agencies to creative boutiques, I’ve had a leadership role in marketing and advertising creating integrated campaigns for brands such as Coca Cola, Verizon, Blackberry, Staples, Smith Barney, P&G, Popeyes Chicken, Minolta Cameras, Topps Baseball Cards, The Red Cross and ESPN.
Expanding into branded content I created and wrote a sitcom for Turner Entertainment titled Psych Ward, co-developed a reality show for The Golf Channel, created a food & beverage based TV pilot called Pairings, a webisodic sitcom for a bagel company and a docu series about businesses in San Francisco's Mission District.
Prior to advertising, I applied my psychology degree as a clinical researcher in a neonatal intensive care unit, an emergency room and at 22 years old I was named the head mental health counselor in a locked psychiatric unit responsible for more than 80 psychotic patients.
Growing up in Boston, a devoted sports fan, I spent my formative years in enemy territory, New York City and currently reside in the beautiful northern part of the Bay Area.
