I am a creative director whose passion is to bring brands to life through multi-channel storytelling and team collaboration.
As a multi-disciplinary creative, with eighteen years of agency and self-starter experience I understand the value of working hands-on to successfully integrate visual design, user experience, filmmaking, strategy into a cohesive vision . My abilities and experience give me the insights and acumen to understand what makes stellar work, along with the sensitivity to successfully manage and mentor multi-disciplinary teams to reach marketing and product goals with efficiency and grace.
Currently, I am working as creative director of the-call.co, my own independent design consultancy focusing on helping individuals, non-profits and organizations position themselves through a customized approach to video, design, branding, writing and strategy. Some recent clients include Stanford’s BioBricks Foundation, Swift Shift, San Francisco Cinematheque, San Francisco Electronic Music Festival, Sites Unseen, and Viso Trust.
In my last agency role, I was the Creative Director for Code and Theory’s San Francisco office. I was responsible for leading pitches for new business growth, managing and building a core team, and overseeing the day-to-day creative vision for clients. During my tenure in the San Francisco office, we won a 2015 Webby Award for Visitcalifornia.com, as well as key accounts including Morton Salt, Benefit Cosmetics and Twomey wineries.
