Marketing and Sales

Marketing and Sales Director

It is my guiding belief that people want to read the incredible work our authors produce and that we, in marketing and sales, should do everything we can to make sure as many people as possible buy, access, and read our books. Creativity, innovation, and pioneering marketing campaigns are what drive me to succeed. I love trying new things, even when they don’t work! Outside of my career, my history PhD considered the role of popular music in WWII, thus hooking me into the power of message; I love soccer (Arsenal fan); and being out in nature and on the water with my wife (Hilary) and dog (Kaanu).

I believe that there’s no stronger force for peace, intelligence, and empathy than well-written books. I have dedicated myself to highlighting our innovative works of literature and scholarship and am proud to share these resources with as many people as I can. After interning at Sage House during undergrad and participating in the Mellon University Press Diversity Fellowship at the University of Chicago Press, I officially joined Cornell University Press’ marketing team in August 2021. Whether its working on my own writing, playing Dungeons and Dragons, or immersing myself in audio dramas, I’m nearly always immersing myself in stories.

Subrights Manager

As Subsidiary Rights Manager for Cornell University Press, I see firsthand how truly global our audience is. (Our books have been translated into nearly 50 languages.) In 1999, after five years at the Press, I moved to North Carolina and began working offsite. I love to snow ski, travel with my husband and our dog Jake, and cheer loudly for Wake Forest University (Go, Deacs!).

Social Media Coordinator

Convoluted times require adaptability, innovation, and commitment. Our marketing team brings just that. Together with my colleagues, I work to disseminate and promote knowledge that is both meaningful and relevant. Telling stories is what we do best, and I am grateful to have the opportunity to support students, professors, authors, and our community in the process. When not at Sage House, you can find me chasing my toddler, Maddox, at a local playground or reading a children’s book to my baby daughter, Mara.

Digital Marketing Manager

In a world awash with endless information, true wisdom can be hard to find. Working alongside my creative colleagues in the Cornell University Press marketing team, I act as an advocate for the authors of Cornell University Press to ensure that their research, wisdom, and books are circulated as widely as possible to the scholarly world and beyond. When I’m taking a break from changing the world one book at a time, I enjoy playing music with my trusty saxophone, going for mountain biking and hiking in the woods, and adventurously exploring everything under the sun with my wife and eight-year-old.

Advertising, Awards, and Exhibits Coordinator

I’m pleased to be a part of Press’s mission by marketing its books to the world by way of conferences, advertising, and awards. I enjoy the challenges of academic publishing having come from the legal publisher West Group and newspapers The Villager and Downtown Express in New York City. My MFA in painting helps with the visuals here and my other careers in gardening and restoring an 1823 Greek Revival farmhouse.

I joined Cornell University Press in March 2019. As a graduate of Ithaca College with a B.S. in Integrated Marketing Communications and a minor in English, the combination allowed for focuses in structured market strategy and indulgent explorations into the pages of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. The only way to make sense of the two seemingly polar areas of study was to land here at the Press, where I can effectively strategize how best to share important stories. I love collaborating, adventuring, listening to Carol King, and swimming in Ithaca, NY.

Marketing Assistant

My background in marketing and my passion for books and learning led me to Cornell University Press in April of 2019. Working alongside my colleagues in the marketing department, we utilize our expertise to help showcase the incredible work done by the authors of the press. When I’m not perched on the third floor of Sage House along with the rest of the marketing team, you can find me with a camera in hand, exploring the beautiful gorges and trails, the finger lakes region has to offer.
