about me

Common sense, creativity, passion...
this is my approach to providing marketing consulting services.

Since 1995, I’ve been working with clients in public agencies, professional services, the pet industry, and beyond to provide simple, straightforward solutions to everyday marketing needs.

I specialize in small to medium sized companies, because it allows me to develop rewarding professional relationships with the people, and a resulting shared enthusiasm about their business.

The goal of my services is to help you develop powerful communication tools and programs that will enable your business to attract, satisfy, and maintain both new and existing customers.
