I am a seasoned award-winning MBA Creative/Design Director with 15+ years experience specializing in product design, campaign creative and branding currently who is residing and working in the San Francisco Bay Area, California.
With a visual art background, a seasoned proficiency of strategy, UX, technology, and copywriting, and a hands-on style, I lead multi-disciplinary teams to deliver experiences that are human-centric by nature and have a clean and elegant design aesthetic. I love teaching/mentoring talent, bringing ideas to life, and fostering a highly collaborative work/play team culture. Accounts that I have led and/or worked on extensively include: Intel, Kia, Microsoft, Activision, Hyundai, Best Buy, ESPN, Sony, Toyota, and Visa.
I am adept in Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Premiere and After Effects. I also know my way around html and CSS. Over the years, my work has garnered recognition from Awwwards, OMMA, WebAwards, Addy Awards, Art Directors Club, One Show, W3, and Ad:Tech.
In addition to my love of visual art and design, I have also had a longtime passion for practicing and instructing martial arts.
