I am well versed in multiple disciplines of the design and marketing genre … print, web site design, dynamic media, large format, identity, environmental and audio/video. I have experience in many different media types from small to large format.
My proudest moment was taking the lead in designing the visual identity and strategy for the U.S. Olympic Team for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China. The installation (at 4:00 a.m. no less) in USA House of a 30 foot-long image of Team USA marching in for the opening ceremony will forever be etched in my memory. Designing and installing the rest of the 42,000 square-foot venue was no small feat either.
I have been a business owner, freelancer and employee in my field since 1998, and I understand the complexities of relationships in the workplace, and between client and vendor. Truly understanding a client's desires and concerns is paramount to communication. It is this understanding which makes communication arts successful.
I reported directly to the Chief Marketing Officer, and the Director of Research and Brand Management for three years at the U.S. Olympic Committee, and thus was responsible for managing teams from numerous creative agencies, including Nike, McGarry Bowen, SME Branding and Post No Bills. My resumé and portfolio will indicate my level of skill and experience in the design arena.
Since 2012, I have been an instructor at Pikes Peak Community College. I direct a creative team of aspiring designers to investigate, interact, and collaborate with the English Department to produce “Parley” — a 120+ page, commercially printed publication showcasing PPCC journalism, creative writing, and fine art. Additionally, I have directed these students in producing advertising, identity design, layout, and print production.
