WHO’S THAT IN THE PIC?
My cat, Bowie

Hi! Bowie and I are very grateful for your visit to my site. I hope you enjoy learning more about me and my work. Advertising has always been my passion, and I am proud to call it my career. I like to think of advertising as kind of like solving a puzzle; the message is clearly in view, but you have to first create the pieces, and then figure out how they can fit together to create something that looks effortlessly seamless. Although it is not always an easy job, it is always incredibly rewarding.

Below, you will find out a little bit about my professional skills. However, I would like to do some not-so-humble bragging about skills that are not directly related to creating art. I am the unofficial Queen of Zumba, an official fan of Beyonce, a wizard with color-coding, and extremely proficient in having duct tape and a sharpie in my purse at all times. That being said, the skill that I am most proud of is that of being genuinely interested in other people and in what I can learn from them. I feel like that makes me a good leader and team member.
