Sports and nerding out in business class were my thing in High School. I took every business and marketing class offered and then some as they allowed me to add credits for extra studies.
I started college focusing on business and marketing and soon thought my interests in fitness might lead to a role that would keep me inspired. Although after noticing the overflow of students in classes would lead to a saturated market of trainers, and the thought that my closet would be purely workout attire, I changed my mind.
Meanwhile, I was visiting the college of art gallery exhibits regularly and started thinking about opportunities in advertising. After a visit with a career advisor, I realized I could mend all of my interests into one career focus, Sports Marketing. Since then my work has developed an extensive portfolio primarily encompassing the Sports and Entertainment industry.
My experience is well rounded with my ability to survey the needs of the project, design, present, manage timeline, lead team members, and execute the project through completion and within budget.
Projects have required both the need to work alone and manage direct reports (including internal staff and contractors). I’ve worked behind the computer, behind the camera, in front of and beside a team, all the while being flexible in my role to achieve what is needed to get the job done, on point, on brand, and with an exceptional outcome.
Going into a space and making it into an experience. Everything from working with contractors for construction, furnishing the space, selecting paint and flooring. I've even designed pieces to help with workflow.
Designing websites for a product or service. Projects have included marketing emails, full websites, and I'm currently learning how to design APPS.
Brand creation for products and services, packaging, logo development, product graphics, outdoor marketing (billboards), signage, books...anything you can imagine that is printed, I've likely had my hand in designing at some point for a client.
My schedule and roles are always changing, but I am consistently open to hearing about new design opportunities.
I design for FUEL Design Studios, freelance for talent agencies around the country that place me with companies, and at times onboard as a direct employee for a company or agency.
If you have a project, open role or design opportunity please send me a message and let’s connect to discuss.
