FREELANCE SR. Art Director/Designer
After over half a decade of full time work in ad agencies, I took the plunge into freelancing. I have a laptop, passport, and will go anywhere the work is cool.
SENIOR ART DIRECTOR 2017—2018
Krispy Kreme, Long John Silvers, Bridgestone, Cree, a handful of smaller brands, internal projects and new business pitches.
art director & senior Designer, 2014—2016
We are optimists, enthusiasts, and pioneers who combine the best of the best in strategy and creative to produce amazing results for our clients. I worked on Hornitos Tequila, IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group), Microsoft Edge, Coca-Cola, Microsoft Office, AT&T, and the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Also lots of helping out on pitches and internal agency projects in the midst of everything else.
SENIOR DESIGNER, 2014
I got to help the world's fastest growing beauty brand develop its explosive momentum through crafting digital campaigns and social media concepts that ranged from one-off Facebook posts to larger multi-day brand stories. I also because frighteningly adept at creating makeup tutorials for Pinterest, which was as hilarious and awkward as it sounds.
Art director & designer, 2013—2014
I worked mostly on T-Mobile, but also on KEXP and Bumbershoot Music Festival. I worked on everything from helping lead the digital efforts of T-Mobile's award winning "Catch Jeremy" campaign to cranking out mobile banners. I also helped develop and evolve T-Mobile's customer-facing look and feel that you currently see on TV and plastered on billboards all over town.
ART DIRECTOR (intern), 2013
I worked mainly on Bolthouse Farms, Toshiba, and a few new business pitches. I helped create in-store collateral for Bolthouse Farms, created banners for Toshiba, and helped concept & produce new business pitches for The Susan G. Komen Foundation and TGI Friday's. I worked with some very awesome ex-CP+B ECDs who taught me a lot about laughing in spite of working until 4 in the morning.
Head Vs. Heart LLC
owner & Designer, 2007—2011
I owned and ran a clothing company that I started for 4 very educational years that were filled with lots of learning-as-I-go moments. It began in my garage and grew to have customers around the world, as well as invites to Fashion Week events in NYC and London. I handled all clothing, collateral, and website design as well as front end HTML & CSS website programming.

graphic design, 2011 — 2012
I learned how to do what seemed impossible with a smile on my face. I also learned how to draw 300 thumbnail sketches without crawling under the table and crying.
Acting performance, 2003 — 2007
I got really comfortable being in front of a lot of people. Ask me about the time I was forced to sing (horribly, I might add) "The Girl From Ipanema" while on crutches in front of a theater full of people. Experiences like that taught me to not take myself so seriously.
