Overview

I have about 10 years of agency experience working with many globally recognized brands. Over the past year I began taking on more and more independent freelance work which I find offers me greater creative freedom and fulfillment. I enjoy working directly with people rather than the bureaucracy of the agency world. Overall, I take a humanistic approach to the creative process through a balance between conceptual and strategic thinking. I’m currently looking to apply my talents to new opportunities in the literary world.
