About Me

I'm a seasoned Art Director, Graphic Designer and Production Artist with 10+ years experience on the client side as well as in ad agencies. During this time I've been a key asset to art, design, print and video production teams. I have a true passion for creating design that arrests the eye, enflames the heart and captivates the imginations and attentions of consumers everywhere.

On the print side of the creative process, I have developed print advertising and collateral design. I have worked with printers and vendors to produce finished materials. I have managed in-house photographers, recruited and managed freelance designers and worked with copywriters, editors and marketers to maintain a fresh, progressive and consistent look.

On the web side of creative development, I have produced online pages and advertising. In addition, I have managed work-flow for site updates.

As well as my background in advertising and a degree in Fine Art, I have taken classes at The Art Students League of New York to enrich my love for art.
