Founder & Principal Consultant
My mission is to help you adapt your agency’s organizational design, creative operations and workflow practices to deliver quality work more effectively in today’s marketing environment.
Many of our clients have been challenged by increased demand for data-informed brand experiences and digital-first thinking, increased volume of project work, tighter timelines and smaller budgets. Others just know something internally isn’t working the way it used to, or they simply want to take their agency to the next stage of maturity.
The resulting question is the same: what change do they need to make to grow, or, in some cases, simply sustain a profitable agency business? If you’re asking a similar question, then you’re why I founded Lodestar.
Based on my 20-years of agency experience and a specialization in digital project delivery and agency management, I offer you objective expertise for how you can not only improve but also future-proof your agency for whatever comes next.
My work is inspired by the Agile principles and Lean philosophies that digital agencies and software companies have been successfully using for years, and that I’ve used throughout my career. You can benefit by borrowing from these proven practices. I can show you how.
Avoid the costs of trial and error. Work with us to gain the perspective, insight and cost-saving guidance to build a better, modern agency.
