I have 20 year legacy of delivering creative branding solutions and impactful leading edge concepts for Fortune 50 to start-up organizations in B2B and B2C markets. For me, this is not a job. It's my passion and a true calling.
I started my career path at the impressionable age of 17 with an internship at an ad agency in Schaumburg, IL. After the first marker rendering and paste-up I never looked back. Throughout my college years, I earned employment in the advertising and graphics arts field which helped diversify my skills and become an outstanding student earning recognition on the Dean's List and President's list. In addition to aesthetic pursuits, my interest in business and psychology brewed a desire to seek extra courses to enhance my strategic marketing aptitude.
Since graduating from Columbia College Chicago, I have won multiple awards and publishing honors for creative design and direction in print and online. My diverse experience spanning B2B and B2C, internal and external agencies, freelancing and entrepreneurship, small firms and global organizations, offers a powerful perspective and uniqueness that resonates through every aspect of my work.
