Hi there- 

I am a multi-faceted creative who has worked on both the client and agency sides on entertainment properties and consumer brands.


Depending on project needs, I can be a writer, concept creator and developer, therapist, client whisperer, guide, visual director, project manager, puller of music and reference, and overall creative vision lead. I’ve worked with influencers, celebrities, heads of music labels, kids, and dogs. I have shot on a ship, underwater, in a store, and on a bear rug. I've worked on pieces that implore you to buy tickets, watch a show, subscribe to a service, book a cruise, get medical treatment, or wear cute shoes. 

I get excited about bringing the best work out of teams. I deeply value coaching and mentorship and fostering the next generation of creatives with a focus on DE&I. But I am equally ready to get elbows-deep doing the work. 

I appreciate debate and challenging feedback in ways that make the work better. I never stop learning, and I find true joy in the process. I treasure the relationships I’ve made with clients and co-conspirators. I have been inspired by DPs, editors, production designers, sound mixers, interns, and been made better by them. I love partnering with clients to bring their brands to life. 

I believe the best work is:

  • Based on strategy

  • Disruptive, powerful, emotive and effective 

  • Collaborative

  • Driven by passion

  • Made while having — at least a little — fun

 

I think big, talk loudly, and laugh easily. 

Let’s make awesome stuff together!
