I've been fortunate to have been able to spend my professional career in marketing doing work that I love. I enjoy the challenges that marketing presents - crafting the right message, for the right audience, in the right medium.
I'm originally from NY state (not NYC), although I've lived in many different places including Edinburgh, Scotland. I love a good (or bad) corny joke, I'm an avid reader (mostly sci-fi and fantasy), I collect fountain pens, love animals, and in another life somewhere I'm an astrophysicist.
If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten.
