President & Managing Partner

That means I: Drive everyone to client meetings.

My coworkers say I'm: The office stress reliever.

I work at Converge because: Higher education and higher education marketing is changing rapidly. Converge was created to be on the cutting edge of that change. We create memorable marketing for our clients with measurable results that are based in evidence. Our clients think differently and approach challenges in new ways. It is a great environment to be a part of. The energy and enthusiasm are awesome.  

What's measurable about me: I have over 20 years experience in sales and marketing (mostly in New York). My career has taken me from large, traditional ad agencies, to media publishers to digital start ups. Each of the teams I have been a part of along those stops has achieved great, measurable results for our clients. 

What's memorable about me: I would like to think my sense of humor, but you will have to ask the people who know me on that one.

My "Iowa Nice" shines through when: I'm back in my home state of New Jersey.

When I'm not working, you can find me: On the golf course.
