About Me

An accomplished creative and strategic marketing professional with an operational mindset, and a background in gaming and consumer electronics.

I managed projects ranging from events to marketing campaign programs. Four years of Retail and Channel Marketing experience in gaming led me to companies such as Nintendo and PlayStation. As a result, number of notable products over-exceeded sales expectations.


EXPERIENCE

PLAYSTATION, Retail Channel Marketing Specialist

In the Retail Marketing Team, I supported the Best Buy and Target accounts where I developed and executed 16+ strategic retail and channel go-to-market campaign plans annually for PlayStation products. Products include hardware (PlayStation 4 Slim, Pro, and PlayStation VR), peripherals, and major software titles such as Marvel Spider-Man, God of War, Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima, and the highly anticipated The Last of Us Part II.

I collaborated with the Product, Sales teams, and retail merchandisers to produce the new-and-improved PlayStation brand pages on both Best Buy and Target which enhanced customers’ digital experience and brand awareness on The Best Place to Play product portfolio. In 2019, sell-through increased by 32% YoY.
