Meet the Simple Fast Marketing Team
Co-founder, Nonprofit Branding Specialist
In my role as the Nonprofit Branding Specialist I simplify complex problems with compelling design story telling. I think strategically and systematically to capture a clear and concise design strategy that can engage at every level. While making the complex simple, I challenge my self and problem solve by utilizing research and insight. I bring projects from to conception to implementation, while thinking about how they apply to real-world human problems.
When I begin interfacing and leading clients throughout the design process.
I help them speak in a direct visual language and explain that, by capturing those thoughts they can express their mission to their donors concisely. Having knowledge of the value of a design voice and solid point of view, I guide our clients to tell a captivating story, build a deep rapport, and give honest feedback.
When I’m not working, you can probably find me playing guitar with my band The Media Lunas, Dancing tango, or hanging out with my wife and son. Oh and i’ve been told I can bake a mean French Baguette.

In my role as Development Coordinator for Simple Fast Marketing, I help non-and for-profit organizations plan dynamite events and fundraisers.
While studying interior design at Moore College Art in Philadelphia, I realized my drive for putting together events that drive donations and make people happy.
This landed me the amazing opportunity to put my skills to use doing event set designs for the food network show Restaurant Impossible. Shortly after, I realized that I could extend my impact through planning and managing of events as well as fundraising efforts for several large nonprofit organizations.
When working with clients, they can rely on my extensive experience to help them organize events that are from the beginning aligned with their goals. Whether they are looking to honor volunteers, appreciate employees or donors, or attract new members or customers, I’ll make sure they have a fun and memorable event.
Possessing over 20 years of combined experience in digital design, communications, marketing, writing and editing, I have excelled in industries ranging from automotive, publishing, and software. I have lead successful projects spanning corporate branding, video marketing, trade show design and planning, content creation, web and social media, and an embarrassment of collateral design to name a few. A devout supporter of the Oxford comma, I also enjoy wine, robots in disguise, and time with my daughter and wife.
