I am a jack of all trades with expertise in technology, printing, food and beverage service, marketing and business development.
I am currently working as the Director of Marketing and Customer Experience at RageRVA and SplatterRVA, where I’ve played a pivotal role in coaching the founder and her son to build a rowdy (and highly profitable) six figure business from the ground up with an idea and just $500 through use of earned, social and influencer marketing. During my tenure I have assisted in developing long term supplier relationships in the recycling space and cultivated key relationships with event professionals. I am the lead designer on a new rage room experience, a rage themed selfie room, which involves six unique vignettes for guest photography.
Prior to my present role, I worked with Good Shepherd Episcopal School as the Director of Information Technology where I led several critical initiatives, including a farm to table food and nutrition program, the creation and introduction of a k-8 computer science program, a maker’s space program and the successful integration of a cloud based Student Information System and Gradebook. During the Covid19 shutdown I also facilitated the transition to online learning and laptop lending program.
My journey into the technology industry began when, as a manager at Kinko’s, I was tasked with figuring out how to profitably rent the Apple Macintosh computers that arrived at my location. That spanned a love affair for computers, programming and web development that has lasted since 1985 and taken me all over the world expanding access to digital printing.
