About DS

Why Me?
I’m a proven innovative, high performing, brand product marketer with high technical competence and strong experience driving global campaigns involving enterprise and consumer segments. I have a data driven head for business/marketing strategy (analytics, marketing ROI, business impact, etc…), combined with a passion for execution and a drive for results. In addition to the above, I have the ability to work collaboratively across an organization, incorporating various POVs, including the ability to secure executive alignment.
I’ve also delivered several global product launches requiring advanced strategic planning, analytics, public/analyst relations, product positioning, messaging, field readiness and ennoblement (did I mention I'm also a SaaS product geek and am very comfortable with scrum and agile approaches to product development. PRD? check! MRD? check! feature docs? check!)

Audiences & Brands I’ve Worked With
I’ve worked with a diverse group of audiences including developers, IT professionals, consumers, prosumers, and others to deliver marketing results that impact business.
My brand experience is solid; working with brands both consumer and business including (but not limited to) Johnson & Johnson, T-Mobile, HTC, Samsung, Expedia, Microsoft Office 365, Windows Phone, Orange, British Petroleum, Qualcomm, United Airlines, Microsoft Outlook, Xbox, Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Dynamics, SQL Server, BizTalk, Visual Studio, and Adidas among others.

My Positioning
My unique (differentiated) experience spans, startup, enterprise, and agency - I relish collaborative approaches to solving tough problems.
