Visual Storyteller -- Starting to Freelance

Here's a bit about me: 


I'm a fan of taking photos, drawing, and building respected brands around the world. 

Sometimes I like to write about what I do in life, and at work. I love traveling solo and take photos of amazing architecture or landscapes while visiting as many bookstores, museums, and coffee shops along the way. I also have a fun side project.

I love structured autonomy. I also love clever contradictions.

I delight in designing stellar presentations, and I tell a great story.

I’ve taken the stage across the US + Europe, speaking at a variety of venues.

I’m currently based in San Francisco, but previously spent time in Budapest, Seattle, Indianapolis, and a tiny town in WA you’ve never heard of. 

I graduated with a degree in Journalism, and then took on a competitive leadership consulting gig where I traveled the U.S. and lived out of two suitcases for a year. A year as a full time road warrior was enough, and I accepted a marketing and advising role at my Alma Mater, ultimately running local and national marketing campaigns for 49 prominent student organizations.

After a decade of marketing work (the most recent four years at Prezi, Inc.), I decided to take a sabbatical to travel for pleasure, explore my creativity, and continue learning for fun. I’ve spent time with family and friends, taking on an occasional work gig. 

I speak English, and a smidgen of Spanish and Hungarian.

I've also started learning French after a magical trip to Paris.

Qu'est-ce que tu penses ? 

I have traveled a rather atypical path both personally and in my career. Leadership consultant, to higher ed adviser and marketer, to running global evangelism programs for a rapidly scaling SaaS company in Budapest and SF.

One of the greatest strengths of my diverse background is that I have a deep understanding of how to work with, and market to, Millennials and Gen Z: the future.
