Behind the Scenes
It takes a steady hand on the tiller.
A career in design and marketing has been a great personal journey. It started many years ago with a graphic design reproduction job. I was fortunate enough to visit the inner sanctums of the biggest ad agencies’ Los Angeles while delivering the prints I was working on daily. That experience inspired me to attend UCLA Extension for Visual Communications and subsequently Computer Graphics certificate programs to become a graphic designer.
I started that career as a production artist for one of the largest direct mail marketing companies in the United States. But while there, I had my eye on a finding a position at an advertising agency — my dream vocation. I was amazed when I was hired after my initial interview at a Los Angeles-based Westside advertising agency. Initially, employed as an associate designer, then promoted through senior designer, art director, and finally, Director of New Media. I remained there for nearly ten years servicing a wide variety of clients from real estate to entertainment. I was then recruited to a competing Los Angeles agency to start up their online division. I remained there through the great recession in 2008 and then as freelancer servicing the agency’s clients after they closed their doors in the downturn.
Now, I am marshaling that experience into Marketing by Design, with a small and dedicated team, to serve your marketing and creative needs.
