About

More than 30 years of communications experience, now at the Zeno Group, a New York-based corporate and marketing communications agency with a focus on technology.

My approach is built on an ability to integrate three key drivers of corporate reputation — metrics of the financial markets, the language of government, and the intersection of technology and business benefit.

It is important to be more than an advisor; it is important to be a participant.  In terms of local and industry participation, I am a member of the boards of the San Francisco Food Bank (www.sffb.org) and the International Association of Privacy Officers, a group of corporate executives charged with setting privacy policies for their companies and customers (www.privacyassociation.org).  I also was a founding board member of TRUSTe (www.truste.org), the online privacy advocacy group.

I am a graduate of Rutgers College in New Brunswick, New Jersey with a degree in Human Communication.  I live in San Francisco.
