As the Chief Innovation Officer for Angelsmith, Carin is responsible for helping clients understand their consumers better. She is well-known for developing the ground-breaking Dining Decision Ecosystem™ for the restaurant industry that uncovered the most influential triggers consumers rely on before making a reservation. She has replicated that proprietary discovery process for packaged consumer goods, wineries, travel and retail clients.
Her personal brand experience includes La Tortilla Factory, Kite Hill Cheese, Hilton Hotels, Chevron Products Company, Rodney Strong Vineyards, Autodesk, Gloria Ferrer Sparkling Wine, Pinot Patch Wines, Romililly Wines, Clos Du Val winery, California Pizza Kitchen, Carmax, Outback Steakhouse, Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, Johnnie Walker, Palms Casino Resort Las Vegas, Tanqueray, Taco Bell Foundation, KFC and others.
Her personal passions include great wine, great food and big happy Labradors. But her driving force every day is her partner and husband Eric Oliver and their gorgeous daughter. A native of Los Angeles, she defied her roots and now lives and works in Marin County just north of San Francisco.
