I've worked with clients in many industries including chefs, film producers, executive coaches, resturanteurs, hotel moguls, book enthusiasts, cable companies, and retailers.

Past Experience

Love & War

New York, NY
(2007 – 2013)

Creative Producer

Love & War is a full service branding and advertising agency with a progressive focus on hospitality, entertainment and technology. I joined the founding partners in 2007, months after the company was established, and served many roles over the years.

I was the premiere jack of all trades. I managed teams of designers, developed creative, restarted the modem, directed photoshoots, plunged toilets, produced commercials, corraled goats, built websites, presented work, and made friends.
