The Point: As we all step into this new communications paradigm, I want to help others overcome the challenges ahead as "push" communication fades and is assimilated by modes of social communication that build closer, more naturally human relationships.
In a Nutshell: I am a marketing, communications and sales professional with innate creative senses. I enjoy stretching the envelope, inventing, promoting and managing innovative projects.
