Brand Vision & Governance

I am proud to be a highly recommended creative leader adept at unifying teams, developing processes, and channeling creativity toward strategic objectives. My resume highlights a diverse career and showcases the depth of expertise I’ve developed along the way. 

About me

I have been fortunate to work as a Creative Director, leading global rebrands and managing design teams in varying cultures, countries, and cities. I love to collaborate, and I am comfortable in any creative role. I am looking for an opportunity to work in an employee-focused, creative culture. Salary is part of the equation but not the most important factor.

Everything on my site was conceived, developed, and produced by me. I am goal-oriented and an active designer who loves to dream up the big idea, but I’m also skilled enough to build it out if I need to.

I communicate well, am transparent, and am loyal to my company, partners, and team.

My values

These are the values I live by personally and professionally. While I am goal-oriented and work hard to meet deadlines and exceed expectations – I am looking for a good company fit with a work-life culture. Salary and benefits are only a part of the equation.

Let's Connect!

I’m passionate about what I do and the people I surround myself with. It would be great to keep it going and start a real conversation – the best way to connect with me professionally is through LinkedIn.
