LET'S MAKE IT HAPPEN.

As a specialist in creative marketing and traditional and digital production pipelines, I thrive in a multifaceted work environment - where I am constantly seeking ways to streamline process and to push the boundaries of what is creatively possible.


I currently work in Marketing and PR in New York, NY and before that I was in Los Angeles, CA for 8 years, working in entertainment production and executive administration. My portfolio includes projects ranging from commercials, to book publishing, branding, and main title design for television and film.

 

MY SKILLS

360 Approach

I am most comfortable in the middle of everything, with a hand and eye on every aspect of a bigger picture. My diverse background allows me to see any given problem or project from a multitude of angles to help foster out of the box solutions. I want to work with other creative souls to create excitement. If I know where we need to go, I can figure out a path forward.

 

CONTENT CREATION

The Medium Should Fit the Message

Just as the message should fit the audience. I like to have my thumb on the pulse of what's cool and what's next - I'm always brimming with fun facts and connecting the seemingly unconnected. Having produced projects based in animation, design, print and branding - I am not only a thinker but a maker and a doer.

CREATIVE STRATEGY

Engage & Influence

I believe we have left the era of cookie cutter solutions. Technology and communication are evolving at a rapid pace. That doesn't scare me, it excites me. I have led a company re-branding and understand the importance of authentic and achievable solutions.

COMMUNICATION

Getting Organized

Clear communication is the most important tool in any producer or marketer's arsenal. I have a degree in English literature, I rarely am without a book in my hand, and I know getting the correct message across to an audience is what it's all about. Everyone has a story to tell, I have the privledge to help tell those stories.
