Bio & Resume

Simple creative solutions for complex problems.

I have over 20 years of experience in traditional and digital media. As an early convert to the web and a digital junkie, I have comprehensive knowledge of many digital technologies, web, social, mobile and games. This experience has given me a passion for exploring new technology and integrating creative ideas across all types of media. I have learned to be responsive and adaptive to new mediums. It is just different variables of the challenge of brand communication. Communication is an Art and integrated communications makes a strong brand.

My experience crosses a vast spectrum of industries including Entertainment, Education, Finance, Healthcare, Insurance, Lifestyle, Technology, Gaming and Non-profit. My past clients have ranged from large corporations with expansive budgets to small non-profits with no budget. My strengths include brainstorming new ideas, conceptual thinking, strategic direction, working with clients, managing vendors and mentoring creative teams. I understand the importance of listening to clients and managing their expectations. I know how to stick to schedules, make deadlines, work with vendors and delegate tasks as needed. I work well in a team environment either directing or supporting, but I can manage jobs independently from start to finish.

Specialties: Brand Therapist, Pixel Master, Vector Visionary and UX Motivator.
