My experience spans both traditional and digital advertising. Over the last 19 years, I have created everything from brand campaigns and Super Bowl commercials to iphone apps and e-commerce platforms. My work has been recognized by Cannes, Clio, Communication Arts, the Webbys and the ADDY’s.
I am competitive, I work really hard and I don’t like settling for no.
