As Yahoo's Global Creative Director, I develop and direct the creative for all aspects of Yahoo consumer marketing including advertising (TV, OOH, Print, Digital, Social, Email), branding, events and everything in between - for the 3rd most frequented website worldwide, and over a billion monthly users.

I head up the internal Creative Department, managing and inspiring a team of 30+ creatives (ACDs, Art Directors, Copywriters, Designers, Animators, Producers, and Engineers) as well as lead relationships with external agencies and creative partners.

My passion and experience is everything Advertising & Design. I excel in creating campaigns for all advertising media plus concept/design for events, packaging, retail, and brand experiences. I've been leading and managing creative teams for over 8 years. I’ve been at the Sr Director level at Yahoo for over 3 years now and the Director level for 2 previously.

I have a passion for powerful and effective creative that builds emotional connections between consumers and brands. I inspire and grow creative talent, with hands-on direction from concept to execution and thrive at cross-functional leadership and collaboration.

I regularly sell through, discuss, and defend creative work with our CMO and CEO, and have spoken at all-company meetings and department off sites. I've also won the Yahoo performance award 2 years in a row, awarded to the top 5% employees based on performance and peer evaluations.

I have expert knowledge of all Adobe creative software as well professional video editing tools– Avid, Final Cut Pro, and Premiere.

I always stay levelheaded plus I'm ego and drama free.
