I get excited about connecting with people through digital marketing, social media, communications, and public relations. I do that as part of the Community team at Hootsuite Media – working to change the way the world communicates via social media. We cultivate and nurture online communities in each of our global markets, connecting users with the Hootsuite brand and with each other.
When I’m not hooting, I’m working as Principal and Project Manager at hack Media – a boutique digital marketing consultancy that uses focused tactics to deliver brand messages to the people who buy from them. I work with small and medium-size businesses locally and globally to connect messages and audiences with real impact.
Brands I’ve worked with include New Zealand Travel Group, the PGA of British Columbia, Golf Vancouver Island, Mount Washington Alpine Resort, and Highland Pacific among others. Each experience helped me develop my skillset – a bag of tricks I add to every day. Find my full career story on LinkedIn.
In my spare time I like to play outside – golf, biking, skiing, and hiking are among my favourite things to do. Pretty often I’ll Instagram those trips.
Blogging primarily helps me develop ideas. Expect posts about professional development, marketing psychology, social media, consumer behaviour, the golf industry, personal growth and whatever else I happen to think about.
If I can help YOU don’t hesitate to contact me. I’m always keen for new projects and collaboration.
