OK, some personal stuff.
How does a kid from the burbs of Chicago, who grew up on a John Deere tractor and with a love for The Flash and Legos, end up in Orange County, CA? Advertising is the short answer. The Legos and tractors are both much cooler now than when I was a kid, but all that tinkering and building helped shape me. It instilled creativity, vision, and problem-solving skills.
Now here is some professional stuff.
I'm an award-winning Creative Director with a strategic digital and integrated, cross-channel background. As a leader, contributor, and catalyst I have managed multi-million dollar brands throughout my career. Experienced in advertising design, graphic design, multimedia design and web development, I commit to managing every phase of brand development and client relationships by contributing with an understanding of every role of the team and effectively supplying the required interfaces needed to deliver results.
And I can still build a pretty wicked Millennium Falcon.
