As a consultant coming from a background of applied science into the area of market communications, I focus on two areas that are  dynamically interwoven - this I find stimulating.



Objective market research, as part of new business development, offers me long-term projects to pursue and a sense of gratification when I see myself helping to bring someone’s dream to fruition.

    frontiers of communication.
