Senior Marketing Technology Executive

Hi! If you're here because you thought you saw or heard me on some show talking about comics, Star Trek, or marketing technology…yes, that was me. Same guy.

I'm a Vice President at Wunderman Thompson, a New York-based global marketing communications agency with 200 offices in 90 markets. My team is a center of excellence, specializing in data-driven campaign automation and personalization.

Yep. That's a real job.

I'm also a co-founder and Vice President of the African American Film Critics Association. AAFCA members are a geographically diverse cross-section of journalists, covering all genres of the cinematic arts while representing multiple mediums – including print, TV, radio broadcast and online. Collectively, they reach a worldwide audience in excess of 100 million. You can see our members regularly on Turner Classic Movies, The annual AAFCA Awards, Our annual TV Honors Show, and other cool places.

I'm also a voting member of multiple entertainment award committees. That's fun, and I think my votes have helped launch or sustain some amazing careers.

And…I am a cancer survivor. (That's your reminder to get screened/tested.)

Before all that, I was a marketing exec in the entertainment industry, mostly in music. I've written strategies and plans that have sold millions of albums (back when you used to have to sell physical units) across almost every genre of music.

Along the way, I've also owned a comic book store and a few websites that I've either sold or moved on from.

I own and edit SciFiGeneration.com. I talk about science fiction movies on the Sci Fi Time Capsule Podcast.
