From Crayola to Cannes –
I've always had A desire to create.
A keen eye, a steadfast work ethic and willingness to be hands-on has helped me carve my niche in this industry - but that was only part of the recipe. My education at Parsons School of Design was a full time job and one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. It exposed me to a universe of diversity and creativity that continues to influence my career and personal life daily.
A week after graduation I had the opportunity to cut my teeth at BBDO NY. This experience solidified what advertising expected from me and illuminated the importance of professional mentorship. I'm grateful for the men and women who provided me the space to challenge myself, make mistakes and grow to be the best version of me.
Today, I consciously practice the qualities I admired so much in my leaders. Shoulder to shoulder with you in the trenches of a pitch, the patience when "Ya got 5 minutes?" turns into 55 minutes, choreographing the dance with Strategy, Account and Finance all while delivering great creative with unspoken humility. I believe this combination of character encourages a culture of inclusivity and respect essential for success. Good ideas may come naturally. Great ideas take craft.
Let's make something GREAT.
