I am a C-Level digital media leader with over 20 years of experience building value through revenue growth, operational excellence and innovative partnerships in the social, video, consumer marketing, and media industries.
I have grown companies both in a startup environment (Jellysmack, StyleHaul, Hypnotic) and within major corporate organizations. I do this through a relentless focus on high-level, high-value partnerships rooted in integrity and transparency, and make managing and developing high performing teams a priority.
I have generated business development deals that have driven hundreds of millions in revenue, partnered with Apple on American Idol to release 100+ number one singles, and launched mobile games with over 100M downloads. I also founded the leading pet vertical, The Pet Collective, and worked with Vice to launch the food vertical Munchies.
Currently I am Head of Business Development and West Coast Operations at Jellysmack, a social video company. We launch and scale communities cross-platform and over 400+ pieces of captivating short form social content each week to our audience of 140M global fans. As part of the executive team, I oversee our 20+ person US content team, manage our strategic partnerships with Facebook, Snap, Instagram, Youtube, Twitter and Pinterest, and generally try to evolve and grow the company through strategic partnerships.
