About Me


     I am Director of Marketing at the Ayn Rand Institute (ARI) in Orange County, California, since October 2018. Prior to starting at ARI, I spent five years as a marketing strategy consultant, working with a variety of companies from local small and mid-sized businesses and startups, authors, and professional firms.


     I grew up in the Midwest, where I earned degrees in philosophy and the German language, with a semester in the Netherlands before moving to California. In 2013, I earned the Certified Specialist of Wine designation from the Society of Wine Educators. I review wines, teach wine and spirits seminars and speak at private events with The Sommelier Company.
