what's my story?

I'm a title. Click here to edit meSumma

My career is the compilation of experiences I’ve had marketing and advertising some of the world’s leading brands.

 

My work for companies such as Delta Air Lines, Wachovia, Time Warner Cable and Coca-Cola has been showcased in Creativity, Ad Age and Adweek. Along the way, I've earned a few cases full of regional and national awards—from a couple of  Effies to New York’s International Film & TV Festival honors.

 

Telling their stories has been the best part of mine.
