I use my heart and both sides of my brain!
I believe in keeping my client’s best interests in mind, and helping them stay true to their vision. I love to be cheerful and energetic when presenting, meeting, and advising.
Making data-driven decisions is important to me; equally important is the skill of making a decision when you don’t have all the data. I have an analytical side and a creative, artistic side (I am a piano player and composer). Professionally, the right and left sides of my brain work together in my role as a digital media strategist.
