What I Can Bring to the Table:
A recent Google.com search on my name yields 10,000 plus hits! Thanks to my Web site Grrl.com, which gets over 1 million hits a month, and the writing I have done in the last 15 years for various magazines and Web sites, I attract a following. My expertise addresses the growing market of women between the ages of 18-30 and teens, as well as in transmedia storytelling and viral marketing.
As the founder of one of the first women's pop culture web sites -- Grrl.com -- I have been featured in Entertainment Weekly magazine, Tech TV, CNN Headline News, E! Network, Online Journalism Review, Print, Fast Company, BBC and Yahoo!
