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.

My clients say they appreciate my:

  • Experience: Three decades of breakthrough storytelling for established leaders and high-growth startups.
  • Judgment: A discerning eye for opportunities and threats; clear, quick thinking in a crisis.
  • Creativity: Known for ideas that break through, connecting brands and culture in relevant, memorable ways.
  • Integrity: A reputation for trust and discretion. Respect for truth as the foundation of all effective persuasion.
