The grey hair accounts for something…

I am a motivated, accountable team player, with broad business experience and extraordinary interpersonal, analytical, entrepreneurial and leadership skills.

I have an energetic, extrovert personality, and well-developed communication skills. I get a kick out of crafting motivated teams of highly skilled and engaged professionals, delivering growth for clients. Willing and able to commit long term, if needed.

Skills

I have held a rich variety of roles over the years…

Starting and growing my own businesses, I have learned the ropes about acquiring and maintaining customers. I ran the books, managed social media, developed the website, cold-called potential clients, organised the crm system, polished the businessplan, pitched to investors and recruited personnel.

In working with game studios around the globe, I have held positions as senior producer, cmo, studio lead, and managing director. What those roles have in common is that you are only as strong as your team.
