I began my career in digital marketing as a digital art director for Digital Lagoon in 1995 just when everyone was getting used to the idea of the Internet and the 14.4 modem was the only way for consumers to connect to the Web. I had the unique opportunity to design "first" websites, such as AMC Theatres' first website as well as the first site for Hostess and Garmin. Since then, it's been a tremendous ride as digital marketing seems to evolve and re-define itself every six months (if not every week).
I believe digital media allows brands can connect with their fans in a stronger, more relevant way than any other medium. And because of that, there is a need for veteran creatives that understand and steward true brand interaction that get real results and real action. I embrace mashable content and technologies to create something that transcends the capability of its original pieces. I believe in challenging what is possible with current media and always look to what the 'next wave' has to offer in further enriching the brand/evangelist relationship.
Over the years I've worked with many brands in many industries and it's given me experience for multilateral thinking. Some of those clients include St. Louis Rams, eBay, AMC Theatres, Sony Entertainment, Hostess, Garmin GPS, Motorola, Edy's Ice Cream, Exxon Mobil, Shane Co. Jewelers, 7UP, Energizer, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Bud Light, Bacardi, Borden, Splenda, Maytag, Sprint, Microsoft and Finlandia Vodka.
I've enjoyed the creative challenges in building brands from its rawest state (image and positioning) to full consumer engagement (creative strategies and digital tactics). I oversee several designers and work with multiple development teams that specialize in many types of digital media to help create brand touchpoints using mobile, kiosks, websites, video and social media.
