Branding to me is about people (the employees that create a company and the consumers who engage with a company) and about connecting disparate experiences, products and services to match intent with form. I consult with agencies and companies alike on a variety of brand challenges that shift businesses into a more holistic place through: repositioning a brand in the market, linking the brand mission to employee's lives and leadership, and activating the brand with consumers. My services span brand, business, innovation and culture. I love to focus on brands that have a good mission in the world.

Humanly and Our Story Brand Strategy with AREA17
Collaborated with AREA17 on the creation of the patient experience brand "Humanly" for people living with cancer. We shifted the conversation from the cancer service landscape, which tells patients how to live and act, to create a new experience and platform that celebrates their humanity and the micro-moments that make up their lives so that they feel seen, heard and understood. Our Story is the first product which is a storytelling site for people living with cancer to share their stories, listen to others and be themselves.
LiveStory - Shoppable Commerce Rebrand
Worked with the Creative Studio, Yummy Colours, on the rebrand of LiveStory, a shoppable commerce platform. We shifted the conversation from complex and hard to understand tech features towards clients' needs. We made the tools easy to understand and geared the brand towards how the tool can augment clients' existing process in order to activate content with users. https://www.livestory.nyc/
Redamance - Positioning Female Fragrance Brand
Worked with startup Redamance Founder to create the brand story and guides for a unique female fragrance brand. Traditionally fragrance brands promise seduction and are based on an outmoded definition of femininity. Brands have rebelled by creating gender neutral fragrances or more science-based scents. Redamance was built to create a new type of feminine fragrance, one that channels the boldness and strength from overlooked women in history to give permission for women to take up space and unapologetically be themselves. Perfume is a channel to fulfill a future self.
PUMA - Global Rebrand 360
Worked closely with the global brand team in 2014 to rebrand PUMA combining brand experience work-streams into a single message with advertising agency, social good strategy agency, and design agency. Combining sports psychology and PUMA heritage, we came up with the idea that faster is more than being quick. We focused on what creates a mindset of a champion and how they change the game. This idea led to a shift in messaging, brand values and experience principles for the brand globally across all touch points.
