The Community: I can offer the community my experience and knowledge of strategic deployment. I have designed marketing programs and customized quality control processes to insure the quality and integration of projects. From direct marketing to social marketing, I am looking forward to this journey with the whole community and like you, I can teach, learn and share.
Overview: Before production I worked in sales in both educational publishing and consumer magazines. That was a great start because I worked with the end-users and advertising companies with a focus on enabling specific outcomes or reaching target audiences.
Moving to a sheet-fed printer producing publications and later to heat-set web for direct marketing and commercial print. Next at a direct marketing agency with a specialty in loyalty and database marketing and back to continuous web production with variable imaging and specialized finishing.
This experience was all about the development of products and programs that were data driven and always measurable.
Today, I work in social media with membership programs and micro sites focused on social sharing and amplification. My focus remains in customer engagement, program development, sales and marketing.

Morphing Rule # 5 Value
