I’m a creative marketing executive who forges brand partnerships in
entertainment and music. I lead projects with sanity, clarity, and a passion for
solving business problems before they spin out of control.

I started in the music business in sales and marketing roles at Island, and
Mammoth Records, and Sony Music, working with artists including U2, David
Bowie, Def Leppard, PJ Harvey, Julian Schnabel, Mother Love Bone, Ryuichi
Sakamoto, Pulp, Koffee, Kodaline, and more. I have led business development
initiatives for online ad agencies in San Francisco and New York, and was part of
the launch team for one of the first music streaming sites in the late ‘90s. I’m
currently in a dual role at Sony Music International, and as the GM of CEN, an
entertainment and marketing firm for independent artists.

As a journalist, my entertainment, travel and business writing has appeared in
SOMA, BlackBook, Filter/FLOOD, and Alice magazines. Also a musician, my
band Bender was signed to Columbia Records in the 90s.
