Within Kiterocket, what are you known for?

I’m a fixer. I enjoy the challenge of untangling a crazy deadline, unreasonable request or inadequately prepared Manhattan.

What is your proudest career moment or accomplishment to date?

Riding the highs and lows of entrepreneurship for the last decade. The experience gives me insight and compassion for client pain points, whether they are just starting up or starting a new product launch.

What is it you love about your practice area, and why did you choose to focus on this industry expertise?

I love to be the connector. The trend finder. The Oh-My-God-I-can’t-go-another-day-without-that-product finder.

How would your colleagues describe you in three words?

Tenacious. Playful. Maven.

What inspires you to get up every morning?

Who doesn’t love the beginning of a new day? No matter how wonderfully you slayed yesterday, or how badly it kicked your butt, it’s always a fresh start. It’s also the most acceptable time of day to consume obscene quantities of caffeine, so that in and of itself gets me off my pillow.
