About Me

I am an innovative thinker and creative connector.

Everything I do is related to people, placemaking, and the built environment.

I leverage my experiences as a creative event manager, published author, public speaker and entrepreneur in Buffalo, New York to benefit a wide range of clients.

I am happy to speak with you about your project; call me anytime.
