Career Summary

I have developed a unique set of experiences and skills that cross between creative marketing strategy, execution, and management over multiple platforms, including print, digital, social and development.

For over 10 years, I’ve created, launched and managed digital marketing and social media campaigns for direct client, creative agency, corporate and interactive environments. Roles performed include creative direction; art direction; production; project management and development.

I take pride in leading a team and achieving shared project goals. It starts with kick-off, followed by day-to-day management; monitor and adjust team tools; and resources to successfully execute the goals and marketing initiatives in the digital environment.

Personal values include respect; accountability; integrity; diversity; engagement/inspire; and safety of others.

I bring structure, careful planning, and attention to detail to my work and express it through an easy-going personality.
