Something weird happened with Google.  Now when you search on my company's name, Unbridled Solutions, a bunch of gibberish shows up below the listing.  We're trying to figure out the cause.  If anyone has a tip, I'd love to hear it.

I gave my husband the Nest smart thermostat for Xmas, and the thing is so cool!  It has learned our patterns and looks badass.  Very cool product.

Good article on some of the downsides of hiring to match a company's culture.  Hiring for fit/company culture has been sledge hammered into our heads so much for awhile now, it's good to hear a different perspective.

I'm not sure why my post that included my memorial video to our beloved Bernese Mountain dog is gone, so here it is again.

I really enjoyed this piece, and regularly find James' posts pointedly true and written in plains speak.  Worth a read.

Our beloved Bernese Mountain dog, Zeus, passed away on March 30, 2013, just shy of his 14th birthday. This video memorializes our life with this wonderful soul, who will never be forgotten.

Story
Tagline
Technology, entertainment and healthcare marketer. Rock and roll acolyte, aspiring cook, and curious participant.
Introduction

I'm a marketer with a knack for building brands, delighting customers and creating demand generation programs that drive revenue for fast-paced technology, entertainment and healthcare companies. 

I started my career in sales with the newly divested AT&T Information Systems, where I worked out of the World Trade Center in Manhattan for a few years before we moved offices to 195 Broadway and then 32 Avenue of the Americas.  Later, I moved uptown to sell videoconferencing systems for Compression Labs (CLI) before I made the move to marketing for Sony.  Marketing is my true path, but my sales experience armed me with knowledge I could not have gained otherwise. 

I am an east coast native now living life in Denver, Colorado, where I enjoy skiing, hiking, cruiser biking, cooking, photography and just having fun with my husband and Zeus, our Bernese mountain dog.

Marketing specialties include: marketing strategy, leadership of cross-functional teams, integrated go-to-market campaigns, demand generation and nurture programs, branding, budget management, lifecycle management, digital marketing, social media, sales enablement, content marketing, partner marketing, ROI analysis, P.R., and building and managing high-performing teams.


Bragging rights
Expertise in all elements of marketing, including: marketing strategy, demand generation, messaging and positioning, sales enablement, digital marketing, website development, market research, social media, event marketing, and branding. I'm a pretty good cook and know a lot about music. I'm a good whistler, and play many musical instruments, although none of them very well.

You haven't seen Scarface until you've seen it on the big screen. Now, fans across the country will have that chance.

Shane Gwin and his expert team just installed a brand new double-sided privacy fence in our back yard. We could not be happier with the work they did. The fence is just beautiful and affords us the privacy we were seeking – no gaps at all due to the double-sided fence. They also left our yard and surrounding area spotless – no nails, dust, etc.- and they put everything back where it belonged. The craftsmanship of our fence is amazing and we’ve had several neighbors stop by raving about it. We can’t believe how much better our new fence looks! A first class job and first class team. We’d recommend the Fence Guys in a heartbeat.
