• NBCUniversal - The NBC Agency (Print)

Art Director - Lionsgate Entertainment
2004 - 2006

I served as an art director at Lionsgate in Home Entertainment for two years. As art director, I worked directly with the brand manager for the horror genre to identify the strategic intent of the key art and/or Blu-Ray packaging and advertising before executing concepts that I would manage and lead throughout the design process. This includes collaborating with outside vendors, agencies and freelance artists, to ensure the quality and delivery of the final product. I would create the majority of the key art, packaging and advertising artwork needed for each project assigned with an average of six to eight titles per month.

Art Director - Image Entertainment
2003 - 2004

I was originally hired as a Senior Graphic Designer, but do to my newly acquired skills at creating key art and packaging, along with positive feedback from sales and marketing regarding my work,  I was promoted to the role of Art Director in less than one year and was responsible for a team of three designers.

Art Director - JJLA Associates 
1996 - 2001

I worked with JJLA Associates in more than one capacity — first as a client, then as a full-time consultant. JJLA is a small agency with some big clients. As one of two art directors, I would attend meetings for new business with the Owner/Creative Director to help facilitate project launches, then it was my responsibility to work directly with the client to serve their creative needs and lead the projects to final delivery. It is a small agency, so everyone did what they needed to do to seamlessly service each client as if they were our only one. No job could be too small or too large.

Design Director - Hill + Knowlton PR
1993 - 1996

At H+K, I was originally hired to provide design support, along with one other staff member who worked with me, to L.A. clients  whose businesses required elements of graphic design. Within a year, I was head of a department that serviced clients in Los Angeles, Irvine, Detroit and Sacramento.
