I’m a Chicago based Integrated Creative Director with 20 years of experience providing creative leadership, mentorship and telling engaging brand stories to tech savvy audiences.
After graduating from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago I started working with Carlos Segura, where I learned typography, design and art direction from one of the best. That was my stepping off point into advertising and brand stewardship – where at the time interactive, digital, and social were coming of age.
I like to live in a space between smart design, engaging experiences, and telling memorable stories about brands. I have worked on brand development, new business pitches, product and app design, UI/UX, interactive brand promotions, customer relationship programs and management, strategies for loyalty programs, QSR children's programs, above the line TV, print and web campaigns, social engagement strategies, shopper marketing, and experiential design.
I love this stuff.
