"As a constant learner, Research is incredibly appealing as it provides freedom to lend my expertise to distinct markets. With an industry-agnostic approach, I garner access to diverse networks that inspire boundless creativity in my consultancy. In conducting research, I collect and analyze relevant data, then interpret the findings to advance monetization strategies. Thus, my work hinges on collecting stories about people, places, and things, which provide insights for brokering relationships and reconciling interests between influencers (musicians, artists, athletes, comics) and corporations."
