Member Since January 2022


For over 20 years I have thrived as a trailblazing and innovative Chief Marketing Officer & Senior Communications Executive with international and domestic experience in the private & public sectors, both with Fortune 500 brands and venture backed startups. Most recently as VP of Marketing for Mark Cuban & Dapper Labs backed NFT Genius after spending time as the VP of NFTs at Polygon. I have been lucky enough to be viewed as a thought leader throughout my career in the areas of human experience, copywriting, brand interaction, creative direction, and now blockchain & NFTs. In the late 1990's I founded a pioneering digital marketing agency, F5 Creative, that is still on the leading edge of innovation and marketing frontier exploration to this day. Over the years, F5 Creative has made substantial contributions to high-growth ventures and award-winning agencies like Ogilvy, Wunderman Thompson, BBDO, and to iconic brands like AT&T, Uber, ESPN, Anheuser Busch, Red Bull, Disney, MGM, Marvel, Nike, Google, NASCAR, L'Oreal, and many others. I also enjoy volunteering my time as a strategy consultant in the public services and non-profit sectors for The State of California Office of Tourism, National School Board Association, California State University System, Disabled American Veterans, No Kid Hungry, Wounded Warrior Project, GeekWise Coding Academy, and Urban Land Institute. With meaningful collaboration and empathetic communication at the heart of my work, I hold a strong drive when it comes to leading new ideas into the market and pushing technological boundaries in the universe of marketing, communications, and advertising. No matter what your situation is I look forward to having a conversation to explore how our paths intersect professionally or even if you just want some awesome recommendations for food and travel.

expert panel

To fully realize the potential of blockchain technology, it’s important to understand possible limitations — and how to address them.
