My work style is side by side up-to-the-elbows working with my team in the trenches. My management style is supportive, empowering and hands off for a senior team; and mentoring, even-tempered and boundary setting for those newcomers to agency life.
What I love most about my work is how deadline-driven execution fits my desire to see positive outcomes of the team's work. I prefer not to think of my own success, but rather of the success of my team, my department and ensuring the company looks the best it can on everything I work on. I believe nothing should ever leave my desk or my team without being built right, edited for content, and ensuring all brand compliance is adhered to. I am ambitious and driven to succeed, letting my work speak for itself.
I have worked for many Fortune 100 companies such as Apple, Bank of America, Best Buy, Exxon Mobil, HP, Humana, Intel, Lockheed Martin, Merck, PepsiCo, Pfizer, Supervalu and more. My extensive print, CRM and Direct Mail background also includes packaging, POP and retail displays for clients such as AMC Theatre's, AMD, Enterprise, Luxottica Retail, and Quaker State.
