I’m a Silicon Valley veteran who’s led corporate communications teams at eBay, Yahoo, Groupon, Gateway, Verisign and Levi’s, among others. I’ve worked with many venture-backed startups to build their profiles and tell their stories. I’m also a board advisor to four technology startups.
I’m deeply experienced in strategic positioning; brand storytelling & messaging architecture; major launches; crisis response & issues management; media & influencer relations; investor presentations; executive communications; media training/interview preparation; and employee communications.
