In being a creative leader, I enjoy all the aspects—pulling new ideas from fertile minds, mentoring, directing, guiding teams to better solutions, pushing for more exuberant thoughts, and honing the importance of quality work. Each day we miss so many opportunities to think beyond what is expected—to become something better than we are—or make someone’s day more moving. That’s what I do well, I push beyond the normal with a passion for meaningful creativity and branding.

On the business side, I am an energized leader who inspires teams while impacting revenue growth through marketing and brand strategies. I have led and managed teams of two in one room, up to 100 in three locations, and countless external agencies and resources. The unique commonality within every team is the importance of a culture that fosters personal growth, promotes community trust, and brings joy each day on the job. Happiness leads to productivity and better ideas. An approach I have used often for compelling collaboration is, “communication leads to connection, which leads to trust.”

With my various positions, I have had the honor of working with and learning from great designers, storytellers, illustrators, editors, technologists, photographers, business leaders, filmmakers, UI/UX developers, and futurists. Having served Fortune 100 companies, universities, healthcare institutions, the arts, financial services, insurance, aerospace, and the US military, I have rich background of integrated media experience across many different markets and demographics. I have limited international experience mostly with vendors and consulates (Great Britain, Spain, France, Columbia, El Salvador, Ukraine, and India). Whether internal or external, clients and stakeholders are always treated with the utmost care. They are why we are here. Read Less
