From my first days 'on the job' I have been helping teams work smarter, faster, stronger. I have been called 'The Wolf,' a herder of cats, a strategic project manager, 'the big guns,' a magician, a ringleader. I enjoy making *just enough* order out of chaos. My goal is to build stronger businesses while giving the strategic and creative processes room to run, not hemming them in with rules and restraints.
I have led client services and project management disciplines for some of the top independent branding, design, and advertising agencies. I have led marketing for the country's (and some say the world's) top fashion trade shows. I have helped my clients achieve - and exceed - their goals time and time again. I even helped a client break a Guinness World Record.
I have helped agencies manage clients and take on projects they weren't sure they could. I have helped clients manage agencies and establish productive, rewarding relationships.
I have worked with some of the same clients and colleagues off and on for nearly 20 years. I have had clients become collaborators, and collaborators become clients.
I started Tuxedo Monsters Inc. to help people make great things. These days, I call myself the Head Wrangler.
