Brief Summary
I'm not an Art Director. I'm an idea guy who directs art.
Heinz, Del Monte, Nestlé, Ghirardelli, MGM Resorts International, Pinnacle Entertainment, Centra Properties, P&G
Professional Experience
An Art Director by trade I also write, concept, design, layout, direct, produce, photograph, illustrate—in other words, I am a creative. I wanted to be MacGyver or a member of the A-Team when I was younger, but I couldn’t find any college courses on that.
