General info

Los Angeles, CA

I’m a Creative Director, Writer, Creator, Strategic Thinker, Manager, Marketer and Collaborative Team Leader. Bottom line: I love getting to know a business and then doing whatever it takes to help them realize their full potential. I’ve helped create advertising campaigns and marketing efforts for brands such as: eHarmony, Expedia, Sony PlayStation, TGI Friday’s, Mitsubishi Motors, Suzuki Motorcycles, Best Western Hotels & Resorts, California Avocados and PETA, to name a few.

But enough about me, how are you?
