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.
Businesses and non-profits hire me to help design, launch and accelerate new brands, products and programs. Engagements typically focus on research, project validation, marketing strategy, and building sustainable organizations.
My professional history has revolved around simplifying complex ideas, communicating in ways that resonate with stakeholders and customers, and collaborating with interesting organizations and people.
I use my time and talents to give back to non-profits who make the world a better place. One example is JDRF, the world's largest non-governmental funder of type one diabetes research, where I'm national volunteer partner for peer-to-peer fundraising programs and consult on fundraising program strategy, marketing communications, and change management.
I have eclectic interests, including street and aerial photography, video production, literature, cooking, cycling and running. I travel extensively, and write about my adventures.
