Welcome to my online portfolio, where I present my skills and experiences acquired over the past twenty three years.  I am an accomplished professional and recognized industry leader. I look forward to talking with you about how I can help your organization succeed.


Sports Management

I have managed a diverse staff of marketing and communications professionals in the country's most dynamic professional sports league, the NBA.  Working for the Minnesota Timberwolves & Lynx, I have negotiated broadcast rights, overhauled departments and developed cutting edge marketing strategies -all of which have delivered results.


Public Affairs

I have developed and executed legislative and grassroots strategies on a wide variety of issues for clients that range from Fortune 100 companies to small non-profit organizations.   Most recently, I successfully included Target Center's renovation plan into the Minnesota Vikings Stadium Bill. I have successfully advocated for programs at the local, state and national level by building strong professional relationships, by developing creative legislative strategies and through my knowledge of the legislative process.


Politics and Government

Early successes in my career granted me the opportunity to work at many different levels of politics and government giving me a unique perspective of government relations and public affairs.  My diverse background at both state and federal levels gives me working knowledge of both policymaking and regulatory issues as well a solid network of contacts.


Marketing and Communications

I have managed marketing and communications for brands that range from the local neighborhood to the global stage.  I have produced work that has been recognized nationally for it's innovative approach and for delivering results.  Additionally, I have extensive experience in managing through crisis's both big and small.
