I’m a freelance food, travel and lifestyle writer, web designer & content creator living in the Montmartre neighborhood of Paris.
My Bachelor’s degree from Indiana State University focused on the Music Entertainment Business as well as my principal instruments piano, oboe; plus conducting. In my 20s and 30s, I lived and worked across the United States from San Francisco to Washington, D.C. in five states.
Some consider me an accomplished marketing executive with extensive senior-level experience in organizations both large and small with all aspects of marketing, branding, strategic planning, process development and implementation, yield management, project management, team management, website design, content management and creative development. I’ve achieved over $35 million dollars in sales with consistent annual revenue increases.
I consider myself a “digital creator” who can combine my passion and my words—plus good design & digital marketing skills—to create things online that can help people and make money. Since 1999, I’ve been writing, designing, and coding on the internet. My portfolio demonstrates my favorite accomplishments. You should take a look at it! Click here.
I’ve been “freelancing” since decided to move to France in 2013 after my corporate marketing career of almost 20 years with “Top 10” symphony orchestras and recording labels as well as leading retailer BestBuy/Musicland.
I’m passionate about staying up-to-date with the latest digital marketing techniques and strategies from Search Engine Optimization (SEO), email marketing, social media marketing, paid online advertising (PPC, PPV, etc.), video marketing, affiliate marketing, marketing automation, etc. I’ve created, marketed, and sold my own digital products (see below.)
I’ve spoken at various industry events as a marketing expert—especially in the fields of arts, tourism and short-term vacation rentals—and have received numerous company awards along my journey. I’ve been cited in various mainstream media sources; including Billboard magazine.
And if all that isn’t enough, I’m also certified as a Professional Tour Director by the International Tour Management Institute and give private, customized tours and concierge services in Paris for select clients.
My personal motto is, “Live. Love. Laugh. Sparkle.”
I am always open to discussing future collaborations and opportunities with publications, brands, agencies or companies – get in touch with me today.
