hey, I'm Kim.

I'm a freelance strategist.

Brand strategy is my jam. Over the past 11 years my collaboration partners have included exceptional advertising agencies, publishers and tech companies.

My collection of brands include Apple, Sephora, The New York Times, Michael Kors, Absolut, Google, GSK, The Washington Post and many more. I'm often called upon to tackle larger business problems around consumer perception for luxury, tech, spirits, and lifestyle brands. 

I like knowing other strategists. My Ladies Who Strategize slack group has over 700 members from all over the globe and I co-ran the SheSays NYC mentorship program for 4 years. 

I regularly speak at conferences about brand strategy and how to successfully freelance. Sarah Lawrence, FearlessCon, Hustlefest, and Miami Ad School have all invited me to speak. If you're looking for a speaker or panel moderator, I'm your gal Friday. If your event is stretched for a budget I actively accept whisk(e)y or tiki drinks as makeshift payment.

My other talents include MCing art openings, moderating panels, and running a whisk(e)y events mailing list.

A little while ago I sat down for a conversation on the strategy themed podcast, Ice Cream for Everyone to discuss my work, film theory, and why Back to the Future led me to brand strategy. More recently, I was on We Are Next, a podcast for juniors in advertising.

I’m always game for a coffee but much more into a whisk(e)y.
