Senior Art Director
Freelance
2014-2016
As a freelancer, I worked with agencies like Deutsch, MAL, TBWA\Chiat\Day and WONGDOODY to name a few, and on accounts like Apple, VW, Honda Motorcycles and Infiniti. I also spent time working with the startups Card Blanc and Adornably on their apps. My time working with them allowed me to grow as a creative and as a problem-solver. With unimaginable time and budgetary constraints, one is pushed to the limit in an ever-changing environment that pivots with user-behavior and testing daily.

Working with a startup was a very rewarding experience, as one gets to build the brand from the ground up and really see a creative vision come to fruition. I would do it again in heartbeat!

Senior Art Director
GreenLight Media
2013-2014
Working at GreenLight, an agency specializing in experiential and branded content, was a delightful experience. GreenLight is a sister company to a music management agency, so music and music celebrities were part of the tool set - amazing! Reporting directly to the ECD, I got to explore a different side of the creative process in the 3D space. I worked on clients like UE Boom, Hyundai and Under Armour. Since GreenLight was a smaller agency, we were also constantly pitching new business which required all hands on deck at all times.
  • Lead the concepting and development of innovative solutions driving engagements between brands and their consumers in an agency deeply-rooted in branded content and experiential events
  • Adopted cutting-edge technology (AR, VR, XR) and media to open new communications channels for brands utilizing social media influencers and music celebrities
  • Managed a team of designers and junior creatives to execute print, digital, online branded content, experiential advertising and promotional materials from concept to completion

Art Director
Rubin Postaer & Associates
2004-2013
Oh RPA! I grew up at RPA as a creative working on clients like Honda, Acura, Farmers Insurance, Mandalay Bay, Blue Cross and new business. I started at RPA in 2004 as a creative assistant and production coordinator. Then I advanced to a Jr. art director position and finally into an art director role.

I got to learn print from the best old schoolers in the biz. I did print ads, direct mail, brochures, OOH, bus shelters, style-guides, broadcast, you name it. In 2008 as the digital business for Honda was growing, I joined the "Interactive" team. I worked on everything Honda digital: banners, the website, emails, micro-sites (remember those). RPA was a great place to work, with very knowledgeable people that had spent their entire careers there. RPA will always have a special place in my heart.
