Brief Summary
I'm a creative with more than fifteen years of experience working with major clients at well known agencies.

My design reflects my character: playful, yet detail oriented. I'm very passionate about my work and that shows
in the way how I interact with creative teams, and help them embrace, integrate, and master digital.

For me, every project is an exciting new creative challenge. A puzzle that needs to be solved perfectly.
For that reason, I always look to evolve and elevate my design.

I have experience doing illustrations, websites, banners, mobile, social experiences, and also complete 360s
as well as digital integration for Pharma. Not to mention projects like CD covers for rock bands.
I enjoy my craft very much. I love to come up with new ideas from beginning to end and be able to share it with everybody.

My latest experience as an Associate Creative Director was at Grey Healthcare where I was able to come up with great ideas
for the pharma environment and the opportunity to manage and nurture a team of talented art directors and copywriters. 
Professional Experience
I am a passionate creative who can’t stop thinking about new and exciting ideas. I have lead new campaigns for all kinds of clients- consumer and professional, large and small. From simple banners to elaborate websites, I never stop researching for new ways to take creativity to the next level. As a leader I enjoy working in the trenches and inspiring my team to work harder than they ever thought they could. I bring the same expertise to building strong client relationships built on trust and communication.
