Curiosity about life in all of its aspects, is still the secret of great creative people.
I have always been a visual person but communicating a vision through a medium is where I built a home. I was lucky enough that my artistic passion stood out and my parents signed me up for private art lessons. At the age of 10 I was being trained in a variety of mediums including oils, pastels, watercolor, and charcoal and my love for visual things only grew. This formal foundation has helped me evolve into a multi-disciplined creative lead.
"The best advice that was given to me as a designer was that technology will come and go, but the principles of design will always remain"
I majored in graphic design and started out working in the studio of a recruitment ad agency. I gained many experiences working in the professional ad world and learned how a subjective area like design can be made objective and produce a measured result. It was made clear to me that a solid foundation in the elements of art and principles of design is what make a lasting career and that technologies can come and go. I learned many things about the creative process and how properly communicating a vision and direction is valuable. I continued my career working on brand development, marketing strategy and web interface design gaining many tools to put in my toolbox, but my quest for the visual arts always had me wanting more. I enrolled into film school and loved how the use of multiple mediums such as video, music, sound effects and typography all produce an experience. I love capturing people’s stories. The dramatic effect on viewers and shared emotions is much more powerful than a empty million dollar marketing message.
After 13 years of working in the professional sector, I decided it was time to build my own brand. My mission is to share my artistic gifts with others who trust in the creative process and allow a common vision to come into focus.
