For as long as I can recall, my geek-o-meter would pin when situations that blended marketing and tech came onto my radar. As an early proponent of the value of interactivity for businesses, I have had the opportunity to partner with and support countless marketing groups and corporate I.T. departments, helping to define their respective needs and finding ways not just for peaceful coexistence, but for profitable partnership.

IMG_1868Somewhere along the way I was dubbed “Geek Whisperer” in reference to my ability (and the great delight I take) to clearly explain the fundamental truths of technology and its impacts on businesses and the people they serve.

Currently I am Global E-commerce Technology Lead for Kimberly-Clark Corp. Prior to that I was consulting for several private equity groups, then Vice President / Technology Director for Edelman Digital. Before Edelman I was Executive Director of Technology for WhittmanHart/Band Digital, I headed the US operations of Paris-based e-commerce project Coastal Concepts, I was Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for leading toy and hobby brand Revell-Monogram, and I founded and ran Mouse Marketing (later Planetmouse), one of the early Silicon Alley web development shops. Prior to all of this I was an advertising copywriter for various agencies in New York City and Chicago.

In my interactive marketing career I have been fortunate enough to work on projects for leading companies in the US, Great Britain and Italy including Black and Decker, Goldman Sachs, Harley-Davidson, Avon, Lord & Taylor, Citicorp U.K., Gannett, SC Johnson, Discover Card, Mercer, Behr Coatings, ABC Television, and more.

In addition to blogging for on this site, I have been a guest blogger for iMedia Connection and has published articles in AdAge Digital, Mobile Commerce Daily, and Mobile Marketer magazines.

I have also been fortunate enough to have given keynote addresses at conferences for iMedia, eTail, and others. You can see the 2 most recent talks here and here.
