I am a content creator/creative director with 7 years of experience managing teams, creating brand and social content, video, animation, photography, copywriting, website design, website development, user experiences, user interfaces, and a dash of immersive experience design. My career is focused on creative and art direction for businesses that promote a positive impact model. I have worked internationally with clients in the United States, United Kingdom, India, Switzerland, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Canada, and Hungary.
I love being in the trenches but I also know how to place talent in the right situation for success and am always willing to listen and support team members because I know there will always be room to grow, learn, and help others do the same!
My musical taste ranges from The Notorious BIG to Dead Man's Bones (Yes, Ryan Gosling has a band), connoisseur of sustainable fashion, fine art, eating plants, and practicing yoga. In addition to the above professional and personal experience, my academic research focuses on the relationship between visual rhetoric and the hyper functionality of distributed media.
I am extremely comfortable designing from scratch as well as responding to established art direction. I have experience leading multi-talented teams while fostering a creative and collaborative environment that thrives on an exchange of ideas and community growth. I believe teams must enjoy and support each other so that every team member makes each other team member the best version of themselves! I am fluent in the practical aspects of design systems, theory, and interactive development. I have experience booking, managing, and working with a high-performing team of in-house and contract designers and developers.
As proud graduate of Florida State University, I found my passion for media while studying under some of the nation's leading rhetorical theory professors and Pulitzer Prize winning authors. Over the years I have developed a "full stack" of design skills, able to integrate Adobe software with mixed media production and UX. Creating digital media solutions that are simple, engaging, and effective.
Where design meets logic, is at the crossroads of media's creative future. As a dedicated student of the many schools of design theory, I has been able to help define innovative forms of media integration, consumption, and interaction. This includes the development of one of the first, media rich interactive digital magazines, in 2012, Electronic the Magazine. As well as the implementation of "Real Time Audience Interaction Campaigns" for music festivals including Ultra Music Festival, Buku Music + Art project, and Mysteryland USA. Wondering what makes a media rich interactive digital magazine? Or what a Real Time Audience Interaction Campaign looks like? Send me a message and I'll fill you in! My portfolio spans across different platforms and mediums from animated content and commercial video production to branding and website development. In my free time, I always studying and practicing new techniques, technologies, and theories. Currently the majority of my studies are designated towards After Effects and C4D.
