What industries do you support?
Due to the breadth and duality of my decades-long B2C and B2B marketing experience, there’s not much I shy away from. Most commonly I find myself somewhere within the spectrums of entertainment, style, holistic wellness, and luxury lifestyle brands – including technology and cannabis.
Is there an ideal client?
“I don’t have a type.” I offer manageable retainers or project-based pricing options that fit the cash flow of the organization. That said, the most attractive partnerships are with well-funded start-up or cash-flow-positive organizations with annual revenue at or above $2.5M.
What can I expect from the relationship?
How long is the typical collaborative period?
I’m [unusually] excited by and comfortable in remedying crisis-laced pain-points in a most immediate and expedited way. That said, the typical partnership agreement ranges from 12-24 months in length with longer terms, “as needed,” and/or on-demand support provided as needed.
Catapult yourself into a world of imagination, supported by a seasoned multi-disciplinary entrepreneur and his full-service ancillary support team.
