My outstanding design, creative skills and capability of being a perfectionist with my work makes me a strong candidate for a Creative Director position.
I am currently a Creative Director within Christie’s and manage the full scope of digital and mobile creation, including apps and websites, marketing content, creative, branding, and editorial for the Real Estate business unit. Within a company that holds brand integrity to a high level, I have been successful in building a team, managing high level concepts, executing and directing web & print design projects, and created production workflows to ensure work is done efficiently and meets deadlines. I have worked with both external and internal clients and know the requirements and needs of both. Prior to my current position I was sole Creative Director for ARTstor, managing a design team, and responsible for the direction and production of the organizations online and offline creative assets.
When not managing my team within Christie’s, I am teaching concepts in design and color at New York University as Adjunct Professor of Design and always looking to grow my own capabilities as designer and manager. I’ve recently received my Six Sigma Green Belt certification in process management and took courses on best business processes from McGraw-Hills Companies.
