I have extreme sense of passion and purpose for what I do. I have worked in the advertising creative field since 1987 as a Designer, Art Director and in the last decade Creative Director. I am very action and results oriented. Due to my trials and tribulations in my career, I have developed a sense of what works and what doesn’t work. Direct marketing is fast paced and requires resourcefulness and a positive can-do attitude, which I have never lacked! I believe in strong, solid relationships within the creative/marketing team, which requires trust and respect, an environment that is conducive to creative development and learning, as well as allows for creative flow as well as processes that work. The most rewarding experience doing what I do is the ability to focus creative talent in producing marketing pieces that build excitement and an on-going relationship with the customer. I am looking to be a part of a forward thinking, highly creative team that embraces technology where at the end of the day, the accomplishments are due to the team's ability to reach the creative vision that contributes to the success of a company or organization. I specialize in photo shoot art direction and photo editing (on-location and in studio) in the catalog/direct/web/retail industry. I have worked with creative personnel from photographers, production artists, designers, clothing stylist, hair and makeup etc. I thrive on mentoring young creative teams in the industry and would like to work in an environment that is conducive to learning. I look forward to speaking with you about the Creative Director opportunity with your company. Thank you in advance.
