The Job

Art Director

2003 - 2006

Media needs for private education are extensive. As art director I oversaw the corporate brand identity, served as the primary point of contact for all offsite vendors, and directly managed internal production staff. I was also a full-time faculty member at this time, and am an adjunct lecturer to this day. Every project starts with a conversation and a pencil, and teaching has improved my skill with both.
