I consider myself pretty lucky. I get to come up with creative ideas and tell interesting stories that solve business problems and make brands famous. And most of the time, I even get paid for it.
Throughout my career, I've been lucky enough to work with and learn from some of the best creative minds in the business, on some of the most famous brands in the world. Along the way, I've crafted and executed campaigns across every possible medium, changed the hearts and minds of millions, and made amazing things happen for the brands and clients who put their trust in my ideas.
I'm lucky, because I still get to do what I love to do.
If I'm truly lucky, I'll get the chance to do it with you.
I build and lead diverse and multidisciplinary teams to exceed business objectives and client expectations.
I steer the development of insightful creative strategies grounded in data-driven consumer behavior and business goals.
I collaborate with cross-functional teams to create culturally-impactful and strategic brand engagements that get results.
I successfully guide the on-time and on-budget execution of best-in-class productions that generate quality creative content across all mediums.
I champion great ideas and celebrate creativity across all levels of an organization within any business environment.
