Principal at August Communications Consultants. Practical communications problem-solver and creator. Bridges the gap between digital and analog. Gives back. Doesn't follow the herd.

Professional Background

I'm a writer and digital communications strategist who has pioneered marketing automation campaigns for leading consumer and B2B brands, provided digital and social media strategies to Fortune 500 companies, collaborated with a professional services firm to develop online strategy for one of the largest banks in the US, and created award-winning multichannel campaigns.

I enjoy simplifying complex ideas, creating compelling written and multimedia stories, and collaborating with interesting organizations and people.

As principal of August Communication Consultants I've helped organizations like Wrangler, XPO Supply Chain (formerly New Breed Logistics) and Wake Forest School of Medicine, as well as marketing and design agencies, navigate the changing digital landscape. Want to know more?

Volunteer Work

I use my time and skills to give back to non-profits who make the world a better place. I'm currently national volunteer partner for the JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes, a core fundraising program of JDRF, the largest non-governmental funder of type one diabetes research in the world. I support the national program by consulting on a program strategy, and serve as a USA Cycling certified coach for the program's cyclists.

A vibrant arts culture is important to me. To support this locally, I consult with Greensboro Bound, which offers an annual book festival and promotes diverse literary programming, about branding, communications, and volunteer engagement. Attend their upcoming festival May 17-19, 2019. The experience will enrich your life.


I have eclectic interests, including street and aerial photography, video production, literature, cooking, cycling and running. I travel extensively, and write about my adventures.
