I help good people and great brands tell the world why they matter.

How do I do that?

I spent ten years running an award-winning marketing agency (at one point Sprout Social even named us the top agency in country), so I know a few things about helping clients do big things. Now, I continue to work with a small number of clients as a Fractional CMO, project-based problem-solver, or a trusted executive advisor.

Fractional CMO

As a part-time Chief Marketing Officer, I help brands develop their voice, go to market, and build an overall marketing strategy. Depending on the stage of your business and the shape of your team, I can also help oversee and guide junior marketing staff, manage agency and freelancer relationships, and provide guidance to the executive team.


On a project basis, I help clients solve gnarly strategy, creative, and marketing problems. My experience building a business, working with 100+ leading clients, and teaching university marketing give me a unique perspective that I bring to bear in a number of consulting areas: brand positioning, business and marketing strategy, and UI/UX, as well as specialty guidance on the tourism, publishing, and NYC markets.


Sometimes you just need somebody to talk you through things. Starting a business or agency and want some advice? Need a fresh set of eyes on your branding or website? As an objective outsider, I've helped dozens of executives and entrepreneurs through the tricky bits.

If you're a student, first-generation entrepreneur, or are working on social-justice causes, there is no charge for a one-hour consulting call – it's on me.

“These guys have been an incredible team to work with and I continue to work with them. They are available, they are conscientious, and they get the job done.”
