Something unique I bring to the table...
- Skill - The last 10 years of an eclectic career and hobbies seem to have resulted in a fun mix of sales, marketing, and technology experience. I’ve become good at understanding and communicating technology across departments and applying technical solutions to real sales and marketing situations, for colleagues and customers alike.
- Personality - When I find free time, I enjoy the typical Portland things – happy hour, the outdoors, and dancing in the rain – as well as fixing motorcycles and voice acting on the side.
Farberware - New Traditions.
Favorite Brandlive event
In April, Farberware held a great product launch where they invited a well-known, online celebrity to prepare her favorite recipes using their new line of cookware. It was a great partnership and a great event, and a great example our how brands can partner with online personalities to get in front of an enthusiastic, loyal audience.
Favorite thing about Portland
I grew up in Portland and have watched it really take on it’s current identity in what seems like the last eight years. It's been really fun to watch, and now working with this group of people at Brandlive, especially in a very unique office, has really made me feel like a new part of it. As for Portland, where else can you be less that two hours away from everything - beach, mountain, desert, and amazing forests? I love the food and drink scene, not because of quantity, but for the creativity that really makes us stand out in yet another way.
Favorite global destination
I think I face a problem common to many travelers: it’s hard to pick a favorite. I love India for the food and some of the most hospitable, wonderful people in the world. Talking with the people in Egypt was some of the most fun I’ve had abroad, but Guatemala is one of the most beautiful countries I’ve ever seen. The question is never what’s my favorite; it’s “what’s next?"
