I am currently a Senior Art Director at Organic. My experience is primarily in the interactive field, although my background includes creative across a variety of marketing communication channels including print, direct mail, corporate identity, collateral design, and some video. My ability to prioritize tasks, manage workflow, and work with people is excellent, as well as managing budgets, photo shoots, and jr. creative. Most importantly, understanding the client brand strategy and marketing concerns while building relationships. I would be an asset professionally and personally to a company in need of a quality creative.
