My job titles have read Art Director, Graphic Manager, Creative Director, Marketing Manager and many more, but I have been fortunate enough to have made major company wide sales/marketing and design decisions for all the businesses that I have been associated with.
At many of my previous positions, I have been the sole marketing/graphic leader and established the budgets, formulated advertising plans and organized the creative groups responsible for producing multi-million dollar campaigns.

I have also established, staffed and managed full service internal creative departments from scratch and hired, trained and mentored all graphic staff as well as designing and implementing appropriate policies and procedures to fit the appropriate business model.

I would have to say that I am a “Jack of all Trades”, with extensive marketing art direction skills AND graphic project management experience. I also have a wide range of business experience from advertising agency work to private and public corporate environments to retail, education, financial, medical and many more.

I have managed, coordinated, designed and art directed projects for DenMat Dental, Custom Chrome International, HSBC Bank, Tower Records, Kodak, Rainbow Records, Coca-Cola, The Oakland A’s, San Jose Sharks, Mother’s Cookies and many more large corporations and companies.

I handle multiple projects and deadlines with ease, work directly with CEO’s, VPs, managers, clients and vendors effectively, handle print production and schedules and train, mentor, supervise and communicate with all internal/external departments to develop the highest quality marketing materials on time and within any budget.
