From American Express to Anheuser-Busch, Bank of America to GM, The Home Depot to New Zealand Tourism, help some of the world’s leading brands, including our own, tell defining stories that drive growth. Personally generate and inspire team to develop and launch best-to-market, multi-platform original content, apps and experiences that strategically leverage Time Warner assets (Warner Bros. Film & TV, Turner Broadcasting, HBO and Time Inc.) including the Emmy award-winning “Beyond 9/11” and “CNN / TIME Floor Pass” app (a “must have” companion for those on the ground at the 2012 Republican & Democratic conventions). Earned reputation as an “internal entrepreneur,” inventing inventory and uncovering and monetizing missed opportunities.

Creative Strategist

brightspots.net
Helped jumpstart this Israeli-based tech startup by renaming them, repositioning their focus & redefining their value proposition to VCs -- helping them secure funding and positioning them for international success as a performance based platform in the mobile gamification and rewards space: creating rich media advertising audiences actually look forward to.

Creative Consultant

The Soundbite Institute
Wherever jokes have to be told, problems have to be solved and leaders of the free world (like Sony's Sir. Howard Stringer & Time Warner's Jeff Bewkes) need to free themselves from pomp and pageantry, they call The Soundbite Institute. Who on occasion called me. It's just like being a presidential speechwriter -- in fact, its fearless leader is former White House speechwriter Mark Katz.
