I’ve been privileged to work on a wide variety of Microsoft projects that lead the world toward to new technologies, platforms and methodologies. I am actively looking for the next step in my career to utilize my varied experience, visionary ideas and the rational approach I have to fast paced intelligent atmospheres.
As a creative I delivered a broad range of high-quality front facing design and business solutions including web, product and demo UE/UI, print collateral, PowerPoint builds, Visio, HTML email, and brand management.
As a Art Director and People Manager I evangelized and guided international stakeholder towards unified brand and quality content systems across 90+ countries for Microsoft.com international. My diplomatic management approach provided prescriptive direction to global agencies and marketing teams that mitigated risk while being constructive, positive and efficient. I mentor designers towards their best work in an iterative world, coaching their careers in directions they aspire.
I deliver on time but know how to level set within large organizations with many moving pieces, stakeholders. Communication when projects go out of scope, exceeding budget or evaluating extra spend is something I tackle with data driven insights.
I am entrepreneurial and having been self-employed while my kids were young allowed me a wide variety of projects! I dependably provide fast turnaround, utilize specifications to provide correct deliverables, produce events whose attendees found value and I work seamlessly in office spaces or across digital space.
