I am a seasoned creative with 20+ years of experience developing award-winning creative for the luxury real estate, travel/hospitality, cruise line and mega-yacht industries among many others. I have held various positions in the advertising industry ranging from print production manager to creative director, giving me an edge in the overall creative process. I am a true creative that possesses that surprisingly hard to find, detail oriented quality necessary in advertising. I am driven by tight deadlines, while maintaining the bottom line of superior design and budget, but definitely prefer to woo first.
