I chose a career focused on consumer and lifestyle marketing so I could work with some of the country’s most iconic brands. Some of these are quintessential Northwest brands, including Starbucks, Taco Del Mar, Seattle’s Best Coffee, and Microsoft. I’m also proud to have contributed to some of the Northwest’s most legendary campaigns, including Rainier Beer and Ivar’s. The mission and people behind PRR share my love for this region, and finding new and creative ways to keep its companies, places, and people on “the map”. To this end, I’ve led hospitality and tourism marketing efforts for Suncadia, the Town of Vail, and Beaver Creek Resort. One of my proudest moments was directing the marketing and hospitality activities for New Balance athletics at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles. Outside of work, I enjoy living on Alki Beach and enjoy the splendor of this land through winemaking, shellfish farming, fly fishing, and boating.
