My byline in The New York Times, Slate, Wired, etc.
I define content offerings; design products and programs delivering them; and grow or guide organizations supporting them. It's a mix of strategy and execution, based on client need.
I'm an independent strategy consultant focused on the business of content. I came up through user experience design, product development and information sciences. A client said I build content "machines," which is apt.
By and large. My clientele hail from the Fortune 50 to startups, foundations to independent rightsholders. In media circles, I have experience variously with operators, programmers, distributors, hardware manufacturers, publishers, software vendors and pure-play digital video platforms. See client highlights.
I'm increasingly working at the intersection of video, content discovery and personalization. Recent projects have been split between strategy, design and management consulting: from establishing a big media brand's content strategy for screened entertainment; designing personalized content experiences and products; and to scaling large, end-to-end content operations. I'm also applying a decade's learning to develop Bucket, a new business I launched in 2017. More background on Bucket.
Simply put? In a modest and independent way, I'm helping shape the future of content: how the craft and economics of the content business will evolve with emerging technologies. It's an exciting time.
