General info
ART DIRECTOR // DESIGNER
I’m a freelance Senior Art Director+Designer who can work within brand guidelines while pushing those boundaries at the same time. I can produce Print, OOH, Digital, TV, Sales Videos, Shopper, Logos, Collateral, Packaging, Promos, Brochures, etc., and take all of these projects from concept to completion. I have over 17+ years of professional advertising design and graphic design experience, with most of this time working as a successful freelancer. My experience includes full time or freelance at large, medium and small ad agencies including; Ogilvy, FCB, Leo Burnett, McGarryBowen and Y&R. I've had the privilege to work with creative teams on brands such as Miller Lite, Coors Light, Dove, Mondeléz, Kraft, Oreo, Allstate, NBCUniversal, Aon Hewitt, General Mills and Coke.  My style of art direction + design is simple. It lives between the intimate communication of original design and the graphic punch of advertising.
