The Story
Chicago creative self-starter living in the Pacific Northwest with nearly a decade of experience spanning Creative Direction, Art Direction, Product development, and Graphic Design. My journey has been filled with exciting opportunities to lead innovative initiatives and drive impactful outcomes.
As the Senior Collegiate Sales Director at Campus Ink, I played a pivotal role in spearheading the development and successful launch of the Student Design & Sales Program. This groundbreaking initiative now engages over 250 students and generates $4 million annually across 50 campuses. I mentored and managed a dynamic team of over 90 student representatives, guiding them in sales, graphic design, and professionalism while contributing significantly to our business growth.
Transitioning to the role of Creative Director / Art Director at the NIL Store, I led the design and rollout of the Urban Champs Brand, revolutionizing the landscape by introducing the first private label solution for selling replica and fashion NIL jerseys wholesale. Through strategic creative direction and collaboration with athletes, we successfully generated nearly $1 million in earnings for college athletes, establishing 63 live e-commerce stores and reaching over 9,000 athletes.
My expertise extends beyond traditional roles, encompassing project management, tech sheet development, and streamlined design processes. I thrive in fostering collaboration between clients, designers, and account managers, ensuring seamless project execution and timely deliveries. Leveraging my extensive network of creative freelancers, I've consistently delivered innovative solutions that exceed client expectations.
In addition to my professional achievements, I've recently embarked on a journey to enhance my art direction skills through participation in an exclusive advertising portfolio school by One School. Selected as one of 15 black creatives, I graduated as the Top Honor Student for the Fall Chicago 23 Cohort, showcasing my commitment to continuous learning and growth.
Outside of work, I'm passionate about exploring the intersection of creativity and technology. I've delved into the world of artificial intelligence, leveraging its capabilities to enhance design processes and drive innovation.
