Throughout my career, I have been highly successful in guiding a number of organizations in their business development, marketing, product development, media relations, and social media strategy. My expertise and insight is in technology as well as the media and entertainment industries, giving me a unique perspective on marketing and communications. I’ve helped launch dozens of products, services & apps with cumulative revenues of more than $500M.
I’ve been involved with video production since the Sony Porta Pak was released – the first portable reel-to-reel videotape recorder. I have produced or created 100’s of corporate, instructional and music videos or programs.
I founded the first company that marketed and distributed a variety of software productivity tools specifically designed for film and television production. I was the midwife and later VP Marketing and Product Development for Final Draft, world’s #1-selling scriptwriting software.
In the early ’90’s, I was “everything” except the developer for the award-winning automatic graphics processing tool DeBabelizer, much beloved by multimedia developers, games programmers, and artists worldwide. I’ve been told by many that it’s time-saving and ability to process 1,000’s of files overnight saved many marriages.
I’m dedicated to encouraging artists, musicians, storytellers and developers who stretch the boundaries of their media and to assisting them in telling their stories.
Creativity + technology and discovering the possibilities inherent in people has been a driving force for me.
I currently teach courses in Crowdfunding & Social Media Marketing at the Academy of Art University, Motion Picture and TV Department, in San Francisco.
Gulture Enterprises has been my DBA since high school. The logo was originally a button from the ’60s.
I took this photo of a house sign while I was visiting beautiful Laborie, St Lucia. I love that the homeowner was so adamant about the message that the phrase was repeated.
