I was born in England back in the seventies, moved to the US in the eighties and have always loved traveling – I’m really happy sitting on a plane, looking out the window. I am married, with three wonderful boys, two cats and a rather lazy bullmastiff. Here is the big guy.
My degree is in anthropology. I am a professional photographer. I’m an inconsistent runner with one very painful marathon under my belt. I have an insane collection of Dale Murphy baseball cards. I’ve been a huge Manchester United fan since the Eighties. And I love Italian food.
I’m currently Chief Marketing Officer at Reachdesk, where I’m responsible for building the company brand and delivering business opportunities. Reachdesk is global gifting platform that helping companies build stronger relationships. I love this because every human culture participates in gift giving. And now, I get to market the act of gift giving.
In the software space, I’ve worked for ExactTarget, Salesforce, Return Path, Conga, and Terminus.
Here I am talking about something…
I also used to work at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway as Director of Online Strategies, where I was responsible for numerous web properties, social media, digital marketing, video strategy, photography, mobile solutions and digital content creation.
Before working in motorsports, I spent 5 years at the Indianapolis Museum of Art as Director of New Media, where I oversaw web-based projects, the production of videos, ArtBabble, online community development, the museum blog, Flickr, YouTube, iTunes U and so on. I learned early on that the ‘story’ is the real marketing strategy.
I also enjoy Kung Fu, Bollywood and South Korean films, photography, auto racing, video games, hip hop, soccer, writing, sneakers, surrealism, sci fi, Japanese Web Design, skateboarding and living a clean life. After years of taking myself a little too seriously, I try not to anymore.
My current favorite cities are New York, London and Tokyo.
And one of my favorite quotes is from Steve Martin.
Be so good they can’t ignore you.
Thank you so much for checking in.
