I am a Creative Manager and acting Creative Director having worked within Fortune 500 and start-up companies. As a creative problem solver, I am known for delivering operational improvements that have resulted in $1.5M in new revenue streams and significant reductions in costs. My most recent project has saved the company $40K annually. I graduated with honors receiving a degree in Media Production, completed post-graduate work in Instructional Learning and Technology, and earned a Teaching Credential in Multi-Media Production. I am an experienced university-level Instructor, and an experienced advertisement Scriptwriter/Producer/Director possessing an intuitive and purpose-driven technique of communicating through smart design. I produce creative results, and I make significant contributions to meet team goals.
I am fascinated with the world of Imagination and Creativity which often manifests itself when practicing the Four C’s: Curiosity, Confidence, Courage, and Consistency.
CURIOSITY: I’m a life-long learner, embracing the realm of possibilities, and seeking discoveries. This process has led me to a diverse range of career paths, ranging from video production, teaching, graphic design, marketing, and branding, to project management and systems integration. My unique breadth of experience includes Jungle Cruise skipper at Disneyland, Fine Arts Instructor at ABC and Centralia School Districts, Cable Television Commercial Producer at Copley Interconnect, and Distance Learning Application Developer at Los Angeles Unified School District. I have also served as a Technology Literacy Instructor at CSULB, Digital Media Instructor at LAUSD, Graphic Designer/Creative Director at Laguna Woods Village, Commerce Energy, iCRco, and CTS Cement Manufacturing Corp.
CONFIDENCE: As a Cast Member, the Walt Disney Company’s method of operation and philosophy strongly influenced me. Employees are cast into a living on-stage play. As a Cast Member, it is up to us to stay in character, have fun, and play a role that is personalized by our own charisma and integrity. With that in mind, I live by a Mark Twain motto: “Always do right – It will gratify some people and astonish the rest.”
COURAGE: I am a leader who is not afraid to take calculated risks and full accountability for my failures. In doing so, I have learned valuable lessons. I embrace team collaboration and the reward of learning from mentors.
CONSTANCY: I am highly dependable, personable, and flexible. I complete projects on time, and on-task, providing a consistently high standard of production.
I am passionate about storytelling, the arts, and interacting with creatives. After all, eARTh is nothing without ART.
