Inventive and engaging, I am a creative leader with extensive experience conceptualizing, presenting, and selling campaign ideas to household-name corporate clients. In my most current role, I've lead a virtual creative team of 20-30 and collaborate with other teams around the world to execute innovative e-commerce, B2B, and consumer campaigns for a $2B educational services company.

As a conceptual problem solver, I am skilled at developing fresh, disruptive ideas for global brands based on solid, data-driven rationale. A partial list of my satisfied corporate clients includes Exxon Mobil, Ocean Spray, Kona Beer, PepsiCo, Frito-Lay, NASCAR Subaru, American Airlines, and Nationwide Insurance.
