Could you use a hand in starting or growing your business? I’m looking to work with a few great clients here in wine country, particularly in my areas of industry expertise: wine, food, hospitality, art and design. I’d love to put my skills towards helping you expand your client base and promote your work!
I’m a highly experienced technical design generalist with a diverse 20 year background in online marketing, e-commerce software development, user interface design, information architecture, graphic design, illustration, content generation and social media management. I’ve performed in a smorgasbord of roles – from consultant to manager to owner – in startups, small businesses and Fortune 500 companies. View my resume for the details.
I left the corporate world in 2012 to pursue entrepreneurship, and have since founded, managed and handled operations and all marketing activities for four small creative businesses. Realizing that my interests and experience converge in hospitality, design and community building, and that I find the most fulfillment in helping other creative small businesses get established and grow, I’m looking for more opportunities to do just that.
