Professional bio

After success as a quota exceeding, B2B account executive in 4 unique industries, I began my own marketing and messaging firm, Ink Stain Inc, in 2005. I have created nationally recognized, revenue generating, messaging and content for over 150 organizations—including venture-backed startups, digital agencies and Fortune 500 companies, with an expertise focus on B2B customer engagement and sales goals.

I have created lead generating and new revenue producing ebooks, articles, email campaigns, and sales prospecting conversation scripts based on newly discovered goals of customers for clients such as Blue Cross, Mars Inc, National Academy of Sciences, Novozymes, Corporate Visions, and dozens of B2B firms, small and large—all faced with the challenge of building value in a world that has steadily grown more competitive.

At the end of an amazing, three day leadership conference, there should be a visual, tangible way to take home the ideas—and that what we produced: a book that became a playbook for actionable ideas that was credited for higher revenues because of great follow-thru.

One of my favorite photos at the SEE Summit for the Academy of Sciences, Los Angeles. Directors, producers, poets, authors, all had a say on this stage about things like the influence of shows such as CSI on students' perceptions of science in the culture.

I joined consultants to help the North Carolina Business Council Define Sustainability for the State. We produced a report that captured the key ideas and actionable steps to make them a reality. The photo is blurry because participants have a limited amount of time in this section to pin their favorite ideas in the 'keeper' section.

This is an image of my favorite Brainstorm studio of all time. It's in Ohio. I had the honor of working for a large brand but with friends from Design&Image in Colorado. There were these huge tricycles you could ride around on and there were breakfast burritos and tons of props. I was on a tricycle, a burrito in hand, and brainstorming...it was a blast.

I was co-producer and a contributor to "Contango", a Denver, CO, magazine dedicated to getting writers together for a stab at their best off-beat works of fiction, poetry, essays, philosophy, populist rants or unpopular rants. Print is cool. Expensive too, but we were really happy with the issues we produced.
