About 

Throughout my career I have worked in all areas of branding, marketing collateral, catalog and advertising design, front-end web design, digital display advertising, mobile advertising design as well as on-site and location photography direction.

For about 10 years I worked freelance as well as in my own design studio where I concentrated on client branding through print, website design and programming as well as studio and location photography direction, promotional materials, presentation materials and marketing collateral for retail, professional services, medical, creative, and fashion industries.

Most recently I served as the Art Director for Jumpstart Automotive Group—the largest content and media provider for the automotive industry—where I was responsible for a company-wide re-branding, front-end web design, online display advertising, mobile advertising and application design, marketing collateral and managing the designers and freelancers involved in the process. I also work with clients to guide their creative efforts for new campaigns as well as participate in the creative direction for RFP responses.

Prior to Jumpstart I worked as an Art Director for NELSON, a global architecture and interior design company, where I took the lead role in a company-wide image re-brand. In my time at NELSON I created a new front-end web design, marketing collateral, advertisement design, and was responsible for location photography direction as well as custom RFP responses.

These experiences have given me tremendous flexibility in my working style as well as project management skills.
