Ah yes, the obligatory ‘About Me’ section…
Well with my ego relatively in check and my narcissism at a minimum, I will try to tell you what I do professionally and what I hope to be a part of in the not so distant future!
I am an digital producer at heart – In reality – I help craft experiences that convey a story, educate, inform and more importantly entertain a wide range of consumers.
My involvement begins with the concepting phase. I work closely with my creative and technology counter-parts as an idea forms and a story evolves. Ultimately I am there to ensure the vision and goals are not only met, but exceeded when the world is ultimately introduced to the experience (an idea is just an idea unless it can be delivered to its intended audience as initially conceived.)
As a producer, I find my role combines aspects of project and account management, with an emphasis on user experience design, content coordination and overall story architecture. With my strong technical background and respected creative advocacy, I enjoy producing larger scale solutions and diverse/global applications. Although these types of projects are my specialty, I still find a great deal of satisfaction in smaller, clearly-targeted campaigns, as well as mentoring and leading teams of producers, campaign/community managers and project managers alike.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science with a minor in Architecture and Urban Planning from The University of Wisconsin. I have over 18 years of experience in web design and development, along with delivery and account management. I have extensive experience working with global agencies as well as directing technical and creative departments in varying marketing and promotional industries (Lots of “I”‘s in this paragraph sorry).
