I have been called a "change agent", an "iron hammer in a velvet glove" and "the ultimate optimist". I think all of those things ring true but I think they are all necessary to do my job. I lead teams to reinvent and reinvigorate brands to create new growth and consumer love. I have had the pleasure of working with some of advertising's best creative people to unleash some of the most disruptive and game changing brand experiences the marketing world has seen on Pepsi, Gatorade and Dove. I love brands and I love this business because there is always a new and exciting challenge to be seized. Globalization, the changing media landscape and the role technology now plays in the creative process has given brands unprecedented opportunities and I love being at the center to lead that change.
