The possibilities are endless.

That's how I approach life and creative.

When the work comes first — everything else falls into place. That's my philosophy and my focus. My goal is to transform marketing objectives into effective creative that breaks through. For a full list of my experience, skills, awards and so on, please visit my profile on LinkedIn.

I've been doing this creative thing for a while.

With nearly twenty years of experience as a professional creative I've done a lot of designing, coding, editing, producing, writing, etc. I've worked at agencies, design boutiques and in corporate marketing too.

More than purely academic

I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in graphic design from The College of New Jersey (TCNJ). But I consider myself a lifelong learner. There's always opportunity to learn new techniques and technologies.

A full array of skills

Computers and software — they're just fancy schmancy tools. Don't get me wrong, they're great when it comes to executing an idea. I love computers and tech gadgets maybe a little too much. Nonetheless, fresh ideas don't jump out of computer screens. Those skills are only put to good use when they render great concepts.

I've got a few awards too

Over the years I've garnered over twenty awards from organizations including the Art Directors Club of Philadelphia, Graphic Design USA, Hermes Creative Awards and CAMA.
