Cultural Anthropologist. Brand Marketer. Disruptor. I believe that incredible connections change the world. I got my start as an AIDS educator in the brothels of Thailand, helping turn prostitutes into entrepreneurs. Today, I'm 15-year founder of Emerging Media, a branding, PR and marketing agency dedicated to helping tech founders reach their finish lines. Our award-winning strategies have gotten 10 companies acquired, and I'm dedicated to sharing them with the world. I speak to startups, innovators, and top executives from 60+ countries at Fortune 100's like PWC, Deutsche Bank, Capital One and at global conferences, consulates and trade organizations about strategic storytelling, US market entry, and how to master the message and the media for maximum impact.
