My entire career has been in B2B technology marketing, and it's been a fun, challenging, complex and dynamic experience. As a marketer, there is an art and science to everything we do and I enjoy tinkering with both. The people are equally fun, dynamic and complex, and working with great people is what keeps me going. As a partner marketer, I love helping others grow their business with us and drive mutual success.
