Professional Experience

Please vist my site at: I have freelanced at almost every major ad agency, most of which have involved creating content for national and international brands. I am a copywriter and creative director, but have freelanced, as a commercial and spot director, an art director and broadcast (advertising) producer. I love the moment that a client knows that we understand them. I like making people happy. I keep creative on strategy, improve workflow and keep assignments on budget and schedule. I am captivating, persuasive and suave in internal meetings, client meetings, and at home owners association functions. I can prioritize work and resources, while synching remote Starbucks locations with the ever changing future of conference room availabilities.
