Career Advancement, Consulting, Making Friends, Networking, Finding new clients
My passion is helping business owners realize their dreams. I like to find the need, develop a strategy to meet the need, implement the strategy, and refine as necessary.
As the Director of Calvert Creative, a full service-marketing agency, I’ve helped startups and established businesses reach their business goals. I’ve helped them cultivate their brand by designing professional looking websites, print collateral, a social media presence, and more.
I lead a great team of designers, web developers, and writers at Calvert Creative who help execute these services. While the services we offer are important, they don’t exist independent of each other, but are tied together by an underlying strategy.
I’ve lead this great team of marketing professionals to work with prestigious clients like The Ronald McDonald House, North Carolina State University, The State of North Carolina, and Aaron’s.
Remaining active within the Raleigh community, I’m currently serving on the following Boards:
• Board Member, Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors
• Member, Habitat for Humanity ReStore Board of Advisors
• Board Member, Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce Membership Services and Small Business Board
• Board Member, Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Board
• Board Member, Greater Raleigh Merchants Association Board (Shop Local Raleigh)
• Communications Committee, StepUp Ministry
• Past Chair, Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce Business Expo Committee
When not working, I enjoy collecting art, playing the piano, working out, and living an urban life in downtown Raleigh. However, my favorite and most challenging part of life is raising three energetic kids.

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.
Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)
The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
