From a background in scientific research, I have a passion both for helping authors maintain an archivable record of their work in the scientific literature, and for improving accessibility to that vast and growing body of scholarship.

I have significant international experience in driving STM publishing, sales models, business development, and revenue generation. I am a skilled cross-cultural communicator with a strong reputation for my ability to exceed expectations on multifaceted projects and for solving complex problems. I excel at building results-driven teams through inspirational leadership.
