I'm here looking to apply my skills as an art director and build business relationships working as a creative in the advertising and marketing industry.

I'm an accomplished art director with experience working within top-tier advertising agencies. Comfortable in leadership roles or as part of a creative team. Responsible, communicates well and brings to the table a background working across top brand categories and collaborating with cross-functional creative teams.
