About

I’m a founder, marketer, and startup builder - living playfully + authentically as my unique self. ✨

Through Slope, I’ve had the incredible opportunity to partner + build beloved brands for 200+ companies. I currently lead our VC investments and BD + partnership efforts, and previously led the digital marketing + TikTok side of the agency for the first 2 years. Select clients:

In early 2023, I started building Assembly, tools helping marketing teams scale organic content, a product I’ve always wished I had as a marketer. 100+ startups and agencies like Modern Animal, Mercury, and Astranis use Assembly scale marketing through content.

Investing

I’m love supporting founders, and am particularly interested right now in the future of health/wellness, creativity, commerce, and VR/AR. Founders usually come to me to think through all things marketing, GTM, growth + marketing, and brand. I believe deeply in founders that work on companies that align with their values and can proudly call their life’s work.
