I am a Creative Director with over 20 years experience working in marketing and advertising. My experience has given me the insight to lead and collaborate with a wide range of experts in and out of the creative field. Having been on successful teams in both agency and in-house departments, I understand how to collaborate and manage a team. I have managed projects from initial concept to completion including websites, videos, interactive games, advertisements, collateral, html emails, social media, direct mail, lenticulars and trade shows for companies around the world.

I understand the level of professionalism and communication required for long-term success in the field. I am confident that my experience as a designer, educator and leader has prepared me for making an immediate contribution to your team.
