My Accomplishments
Connector of Nouns; people, places, things AND ideas.

My experience as a Direct Marketing professional spans over twenty years and within every niche area in this field; namely as an expert in eMarketing operations. A few years ago, however, I started cultivating a plan to transition my expertise towards more integrated strategies where digital marketing plays a part to build relationships and enhance engagement with social networks. I have used my personal interest in social media to build a following and have worked as a consultant to keep my skills sets sharp.

In my role as The Katalist, I develop and execute strategic social networking plans to expose personal, professional, and corporate brands to their fullest potential in the ever expanding Web 2.0 world-at-large.

My talents are best utilized as a troubleshooter for special projects; solving immediate problems when internal resources may be limited or scarce. I lend my skills and knowledge to friends in the independent music business who don’t have the time or expertise in strategic marketing; traditional or digital. I do this quite simply because I believe in them, their work ethic and the products they produce. I would like to do the same for professionals (or companies) who don’t have the resources to work on social network branding for themselves.
