Advisor Biography

I make my 30+ years experience in design, marketing, and production management available to you and your enterprise so that you can keep your marketing current, relivant to your customers, and responsive. Using data I can help predict results based on sound reasoning and experience. My preference is to work with smaller companies and start-ups, building direct relationships with regular 'check-in' meetings to assess progress and discuss next steps

I am able to offer perspectives that span both the conceptual and realities of producing communications materials from both the creative and production-management perspectives and am not afraid to ask the hard questions and help you find answers for them. 

During my career I have held positions as a Production Manager (Not-for-Profit), Designer, Project Manager, Chief of Publication Services (Government of Canada), Graphic Designer/Web Developer, Private Tutor and Peer Assistant (Marketing - University of Guelph).

Take a moment to speak with me about your communications challenges and directions you wish to take your enterprise and I will help guide you on a path and into habits that will make successful. Regarding communications materials, I can assist with the development of a common look and feel and develop assets for regular use and deployment. And I can help you plan and keep track of your marketing efforts and determining next steps.
