Thanks for visiting. I'm a Brand Strategist with a deep passion for the intersection of food and health, and a deep commitment to using the power of brand to help make the world a better place.
I currently work as a Senior Planner at Edelman, where I'm helping evolve the agency into a creative powerhouse while working on public health campaigns and global branding initiatives.
I've been fortunate to work on exiting challenges alongside brilliant, passionate people throughout the course of my career. Before Edelman, I worked with start-ups changing the world at Red Antler, and at Chipotle, where I led the NYC marketing and developed social purpose brand campaigns to spread the company's Food With Integrity message. I also helped launch FoodCorps, an amazing nonprofit dedicated to connecting kids to healthy food through AmeriCorps national service.
I have fancy pieces of paper that say I'm an expert in cultural anthopology, political science, and public health; what that really means is that I'm deeply curious about people, the way the world works, and using research to challenge or validate my thinking about how to impact human behavior.
Food is my passion and I started my career as the right-hand to celebrity chef Jose Andres. I still cook a lot (but not with liquid nitrogen). In my free time I like to make beautiful things with my hands.
I'm always interested in learning about projects where I can lend my strategic or creative expertise, especially if they involve changing the way we eat for the better. If you're working on something cool, don't hesitate to reach out.
