First and foremost, WELCOME! And thank you for taking the time to peruse through my passion and hard work. Inside this site is a collection of work that expresses my enthusiasm for the business of advertising, marketing

and design. Although my commercials, print ads, POP, collateral, concepts & ideas speak of my career and my creativity, they do not convey who I am as a creative. So this is my chance. I am a seasoned creative that has the

energy and spirit of a newly graduated art student. My perseverance and determination knows no bounds. My enthusiasm and courage takes my creativity to new levels. And my integrity and honesty lets me sleep at night.

As you look for a creative to join your creative team, I humbly offer my strengths to build and fortify your agency. In turn, I look for an agency that will welcome my energy, zealousness and creativity. I thank you again for taking the time and I hope you enjoy your visit. Please do not hesitate to call or email me with any thoughts, questions

or just to chat. Thank you and I hope to talk to you soon.
