My Core Values
Working with integrity, creativity, and a focus on people has always been important to me. Here are some core values I strive to work by.
Strive for INTEGRITY
I’m not about selling snake oil or playing politics – I make honest, sound judgements based on fact and intuition to see out the best possible creative product.
New ideas come with the anxiety of change. Welcome it. Revel in it. Trust me, you’ll see the impact a creative mindset will give you.
SHARE THE SUCCESS
Every great project launch is because of the team backing it. Share the success to every team member who had a part to play.
SWEAT THE DETAILS
Every mark on the page, pixel on the screen or letter in print has purpose. Dive into those details and sweat every little thing.
Learn by doing
Getting out of a comfort zone only makes work better. Learn something new that can improve a project down the road.
Think big picture
Don’t just accept status quo – be a brand opportunist and explore ways of making a large impact.
Past Clients & Opportunities
I am extremely fortune to have had the opportunity to work with several incredible people across many organizations.
