  • Professional Experience

    I currently serve as Business Development Manager for Fetch.

     

    Fetch is a mobile shopping platform that connects shoppers, grocers and brands. Fetch offers a smarter way to shop, giving shoppers more information, more convenience, more savings, and more fun along the way. Grocers that offer Fetch to their shoppers benefit from increased loyalty and larger basket sizes, while receiving access to actionable data to increase sales and reduce costs. Brands who work with Fetch are given the chance to interact with shoppers while they are in the aisle holding products in their hands, introducing them to new relevant products and building a relationship with the shopper directly. Mobile shopping is here, and Fetch is the most trusted and tested third party solution available.

     

    Previously, I connected early stage startups with leading brands at Evol8tion and advised corporations on how to maximize their engagement with pro bono work and skilled volunteerism with NPower.

     

    And before that, I survived corporate gigs at NBCUniversal and MasterCard and cut my teeth at mobile technology startups MX Telecom and Velti.

    Vision

    In a world marked by exponential change and evolution, success requires a combination of subject matter expertise and strategic guidance. I leverage both. Consistently.

     

    Huh? Look, friend - things are constantly changing. I meditate at the forefront of change. It's a good fit. In a today's climate, somebody needs to protect fragile ideas from corporate conservatism and myopic thinking. Might as well be me.
