What do you do?
  • Work directly with new and existing clients to build lasting relationships and make sure they feel right at home with AKA.
  • Think outside the (pizza) box (see what I did there?). I connect with clients, listen to their needs and work with the team here at AKA to develop and deliver new and creative solutions that our clients have come to expect of us.
  • Lead AKA’s efforts to provide branded, corporate and live video production, and media relations services to Fortune 500 corporate and agency clients across the US.
What do you think is the future of video marketing?

Every day I ride the train, I see more than half of commuters absorbing content from their smartphones. Many of which are watching video on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and even Netflix (as a former television producer, I love seeing this). With the power of the Internet right at our fingertips, we’re more engaged than ever. I see this trend continuing in the direction of micro-video content, especially when it comes to mobile — it’s engaging and easily digestible. Content will continue to adapt to viewers’ demands. We’re watching because we can — even on a quick train ride home.

What makes AKA special?

With talented people, warm smiles and a solid team, AKA has recreated the meaning of hybrid marketing. We drive real ROI and results for our business partners around the world.

I’m not picky, as long as there’s hot sauce or red pepper flakes. Bring on the spice!
