After working at a bank throughout college, Tobi quickly realized that a traditional 9-5 wasn’t going to cut it and certainly wasn’t going to feed her constant hunger for finding creative solutions to even the most traditional problems. One of her bosses once said, “Ideas just fall off of her as she walks down the hall.”

For nearly 30 years, Tobi has focused her career on creating experiences, senior management, sales and marketing, brand development, event planning, online marketing (OK, that’s only since 1997) and idea incubation.

Since our company’s inception in 2011, Tobi has approached each project with a fresh and innovative eye and conceptualizes each project as an opportunity to enhance the human experience.
