where i've been
THE MARKETING ARM
SENIOR ART DIRECTOR
Few companies specialize in as many disciplines as TMA. I have worked with countless brands, learning the rules and intricacies of each. I have designed POS, packaging, digital, social, dabbled in motion graphics, art directed photo shoots, video shoots, illustrated storyboards and even hand-modeled in a pinch. TMA likes to do things scrappy-style. Being a big-thinker is a MUST.
If you went into a radio-shack anywhere in the world while I was designing there, you most definitely saw my work - you may have even seen me on the side of the building!
Aside from POP I designed logos, direct mail, digital/social, corporate presentations, created print-ready mechanicals and even installed test materials in the model store.
DESL GROUP LLC
SENIOR GRAPHIC DESIGNER
This tiny agency did it all. I was a graphic designer, account coordinator, production artist, and pseudo-developer all rolled into one. Because of the size of the company I was lucky to be privy to some serious mentorship and was often presented with senior-level responsibilities.
FOR RENT MAGAZINE
NATIONAL ACCOUNTS DESIGNER
You know the apartment magazines outside the sliding doors at the grocery store? Yep!
That was me. It was an amazing first design job. I had tons of creative freedom, learned about pagination, live, trim, bleed and how to make your production artists love you :)
WALT DISNEY WORLD
My first job out of college! I can't give too many details because I was sworn to secrecy... But I can tell you that I got to work in all of the parks entertaining and performing for guests.
Carefully mentored by Joe the owner (Get it? Mo-JOE?) I a got a 1-on-1 web design education as well as real-world experience working directly with clients and even taking point on a few projects!
in a nutshell
Hard-working and always ready to learn something new. Laid-back yet task-oriented. Bubbly but not overly-hyper. I take it as a personal challenge to make grumpy cashiers at the store laugh. Historically a lover of hats - when it comes to work I like to wear a lot of them.
