I'm a marketing and advertising creative professional with skills including graphic and visual design, copywriting, product photography and image retouching, market research, strategy, media planning and persona development. I've produced content for print, out-of-home, video, native / display, email, web and social formats.
I have experience working directly for clients and within agencies. I've worked with retail stores, tech start-ups, local, national and multi-national companies. A few of the brands I've enjoyed working for include Rocky Mountain Health Plans, Backpacker's Pantry, Jack Link's, Matador, Pepsi O.N.E. Coconut Water, Pantene, Olay, Crest, Venus, Gillette, Tide, Bounty and others.
I have a diverse professional background with a B.A. in International Relations, experience in photo-journalism and activism and 7+ years in marketing and advertising. I enjoy deep dives into research, planning and creating compelling written and visual work that "sticks." I believe in applying creative advertising, design principles, strategy and tech towards social good. I plan to create more a direct social impact with my career by returning to school to pursue a Masters in Education and Judicial Doctorate.
