We create connections for our clients that resonate with their customers and audiences. We do this by telling engaging stories and creating meaningful and shareable digital experiences. As a digital strategist, I have 12+ years’ experience running digital campaigns and communications both client and agency side with a particular expertise in building up engaged online communities and running innovative digital initiatives that get results.
