A passionate marketer, I write and speak on topics of leadership, business innovation, and digital revolution. After spending over 10 years as an integrated marketer and social media leader at Intel and Accenture, I am a co-founder and CMO of BRANDERATI, author of the Wall Street Journal bestseller “Think Like Zuck” and “The Power of Visual Storytelling.” I sit on the board of directors of Word of Mouth Marketing Association (WOMMA). I believe in connecting people. Chocolate, fashion, and a good book are my vices.

I am passionate about life, my family, and my work. My peers call me super-connector, as I believe that there is no such thing as a “self-made man” and we can all benefit from smart partnerships. I enjoy social media because it allows me to do just that. I meet extraordinary people on Twitter.  I love the fact that I can stay in touch with my friends on Facebook since life is so busy that sometimes you don’t have a chance for face-to-face interaction on a regular basis.

My curiosity is insatiable and my tenacity is voracious. My philosophy is authenticity and generosity. I enjoy a good debate with my friends on topics of philosophy, literature, marketing, and human relationships. I love speaking because this is an opportunity for me to share my experiences with the world and hopefully contribute to someone’s success.

I welcome challenges and embrace constant learning. I am passionate about transcending cultural boundaries and I thrive in diverse environments. I love taking roads less traveled – being a pioneer excites me. Living a full life is what motivates me – there is so much to do and so much to accomplish.

I am a wife and a mother. I have a wonderful husband and an amazing baby girl. I enjoy dancing, camping, and seeing the world. Chocolate, a good book, and fashion are my vices.
