I'm an award winning non-traditional Art Director with backgrounds rooted in graphic design, new media and big-picture strategic thinking. I'm most passionate about humanizing the way we market through honest, ground-level, two-way conversation and integration of non-traditional thinking.
"Know a little about a lot, rather than a lot about little." This philosophy has rewarded me with an array of creative experience in numerous industries including: Print Advertising, Public Realtions, Fashion Marketing, Publishing, Promotions, Photography and Sales. My range of experience makes blurring lines between communication mediums a natural part of my process.
My understanding of true marketing integration, combined with passion for the craft, give me a colossal edge in today's evolving communications industry!
Aside from being a creative, I am passionate about cultural experiences!
I live to travel and expose myself to different ways of life, views, foods and arts. I enjoy learning from cultures foreign to me and applying what I experience to my own life in Dallas, Texas.
I have a number of hobbies and things I enjoy. Some of my favorites are: being a home barista, skiing, mountain biking, live Texas country music, hole in the wall restaurants, anything automotive and back yard BBQ. I'm also transfixed with cowboy boots and virtually all things vintage.
I'm available for freelance or full time art direction, design and new media strategy integration consulting.
