I am an art director, graphic designer and photographer living in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The bulk of my work comes from my ten years of experience in the retail fashion industry. I have developed an expertise in fashion art direction, a strong passion for visual and strategic brand management and a hunger for intelligent design. I differentiate myself with sharp communication skills, an effective leadership style and a contagious positive attitude. I believe that the best work happens through creative collaboration and that business goals can be achieved without compromising remarkable creative.
