I love creating. I love the inception, seeing an idea through development and, ultimately, how people will engage with it. It doesn’t matter to me what platform or discipline I am working in… traditional media or a screen… my desire is to communicate and evoke.

I began my career at the onset of the Internet boom at Marvel Entertainment.  While there, I was key in developing new and emerging technologies into an online presence for Marvel. This included developing the Marvel AOL site that was an AOL Member’s Choice site for three years; partnering with HP and Macromedia (now part of Adobe) to create original content to highlight their products such as Marvel’s Cybercomics; and creating a premium membership site, The Marvel Zone, which was featured on E! Online Sightings, CBS Saturday Morning News and reviewed in Kidscreen magazine as “most innovative” and one of the best sites of the year.

After four years at Marvel, I struck out on my own working with companies such as Marvel, VH-1, DC Comics, Wunderman and the Sci-Fi Channel. This included a long stint at Nickelodeon where I created the first shopping channels for Nick.com and NickJr.com.

In 2004, I joined Wunderman where I found my strong background in digital combined with a traditional graphic design education enabled me to produce creative and engaging work across multiple disciplines. For several years as the lead creative on AICPA (American Institute of Certified Public Accountants), I created a successful student recruitment campaign that won several awards including an ECHO Leader Award and a Stevie.  In addition to AICPA, I worked several large brands including Similac, Dell, HUGGIES, Land Rover, Johnnie Walker, Smirnoff and Citibank.

Currently, I am working as an independent consultant. Some of my most recent work includes a mobile site template for Hearst Newspapers and the Age of Aerospace documentary site for Discovery Channel/Boeing.
