creative director / designer
I am a multi-disciplined Design Director with fifteen years of design experience. I have led the creative development for a wide range of commmunications that includes extensive print design, integrated branding across various media and digital online experiences. I have worked at top tier firms in the Chicago area and have both agency and big brand experience. My work has strong conceptual roots and is aimed at helping brands grow.
I am passionate about design and I strive for excellence in both my personal and professional life.
For me, design isn't a job - it's a lifestyle. I look at the design and kerning of the restaurant menu instead of what's ON the menu. I'll buy a new brand of tea if it comes in a pretty package. I appreciate a nice mix of old and new: the rough character of antique and the clean lines of contemporary. I have the "old school" design sensibilities with a love of new technology and progressive, forward-thinking concepts.
