Digital audience and Revenue Strategies for Publishers

Take your media business to the next level with digital consulting, training and execution.

About Me

Over the past 25 years, I’ve worked with hundreds of B2B, consumer and regional publishers to grow their digital audience and revenues, and improve their platforms and execution.

I’ve been the SVP of Digital for several media companies overseeing digital sales, marketing, editorial, production and technical teams. I know the challenges and opportunities you face!

If you need some help taking the digital side of your business to the next level, I’d love to talk together and learn more about your specific needs.
