My Latest Work



I’m a high impact Creative Director with extensive experience leading a wide variety of creative groups. I have a proven ability to partner with large corporate clients in shaping integrated brand strategies. Due to my extensive background in digital, I’m able to fully execute on integrated creative solutions. Ideas that range from social and mobile platforms to interactive and traditional media. Ideas that meet brand needs and user needs simultaneously, regardless of medium. My strengths include creative leadership, brand development & strategy, 360º marketing solutions, creative mentoring, client-facing
and new-business positions.

My wit is razor sharp and I’m a snappy dresser.
