About Me

Dear Readers,

I have been an executive at global brands such as VP of Digital Marketing for Universal Republic Records, Head of Music Video Programming for Yahoo! Music, and Senior Director for Global Marketing at Sony Music. While entertainment can be an exciting field, the digital arena has long been an uphill battle, especially when I first got involved at Disney Channel in the late 90′s. I am currently a freelance writer, editing two finished novels (there are three others I’m developing), and writing a tech blog for Fragrance.org as well as conducting artist and author interviews for various outlets.

My blog is purely meant to amuse you and focuses on my canine kid ELLE, music, sharks, books, technology, modern art, brands, crushes and whatever else excites my neurons. You can follow her on Instagram: @grrlgenius_

Below are some of the author and artist interviews I’ve done in the past ranging from RollingStone.com to SheKnows.com to CaliforniaPsychic.com- I’m versatile! Note: sometimes URLS change but you get the idea.

Love, laughter and pop glitter!

Me on The Engadget Show 7/28/11 * Please note is was totally worth braving the terrential downpour to get there (the men had a glam team, I did not. The men were used to sitting in the horribly uncomfortable chairs, I was not!)
