From global projects spanning 6 continents, to one-off assignments, I have consistently delivered for clients like Adobe, Cisco, Pepsi, Toyota, Microsoft, & many others.

In addition to helping win RFP responses, AoR Pitches, and add-on client spends, I have received awards for digital, experiential & pitching itself.

Amazing teams and projects at world-class agencies and studios like McCann, Prologue and many others have taught me to thrive under pressure. With more than 20 years’ success, I remain passionate & ambitious.

Though I studied art from an early age, I am a decidedly non-traditional student. Always curious, I continue to place a high value on education, learning today mainly through technical articles, user groups, and online courses. When I am not working on client projects you’ll usually find me, tools in hand, tackling a new D.I.Y. project.
