My 'a-ha' moment as a creative came when I was sitting in a class at Art Center learning about several of the early industry legends - iconic advertising and brand designers like Saul Bass, Paul Rand, Herb Lubalin, Milton Glaser, Kit Hinrichs and even artists such as Robert Rauschenberg. When I first felt the impact being generated by these creative innovators and storytellers I started loving every damn minute of my education and knew what I wanted to be right then.
I'm a strong art & design Creative Director, conceptual innovator and storyteller with extensive experience working for both in-house and creative agencies combining stellar communication, presentation, problem-solving and project-management skills. This experience includes a demonstrated history driving a broad range of revenue-generating projects from conception through launch.
My creative work ranges across branding, advertising, marketing, healthcare, corporate communications, packaging, entertainment, merchandising, store design, consumer products, digital content campaigns and experiential events in multiple industries.
I thrive in a collaborative environment as a project leader - building, managing & mentoring creative teams and cross-functional units.
