A few samples of my work, mostly personal projects
Full stack creative marketing professional with over four years of professional experience in marketing and advertising, both in Wine & Spirits and B2B tech.
I'm a high energy, positive and enthusiastic worker who is passionate about creative design, photography, video, website design, and life in general.
My success has been fueled by a deep passion for skateboarding, snowboarding, music, photography and other forms of artistic expression. After enrolling in a communications/film program in college, I quickly found that most of the learning was done on my own, and in order to make the most of my investment decided that the best way to make a living doing what I love to do would be to study the areas most commonly overlooked by creatives; business.
Combined with a B.S. in Business Administration (Marketing Concentration) my passionate and creative background is unique in that I place a lot of emphasis on creating designs that are both visually appealing AND are effective in generating demand for products/services.
