“Being able to work on finding ways to help audiences understand some of the most challenging and complex issues facing society is tremendously rewarding. And I get opportunity every day of the week.”

“A decade ago, content strategy wasn’t really a thing people thought much about – let alone hired people to strictly focus on. Today, it’s hard to imagine a successful campaign without the connective tissue content strategy brings to planning, concepting and execution. A lot of that has to do with audiences’ always-evolving media consumption habits.”

“I’ve always believed that asking questions isn’t just a great way to show interest and learn about other people – asking great questions can also be a powerful tool for shifting perspectives.”
