I started my career in film production at a time when the Twin Cities was the top 4th market for commercial production in the country.
Since then the industry has evolved and I continue to enjoy a career as a freelance Art Director, Production Designer and Decorator for TV commercials, new content, cinema advertising, music videos and print campaigns.
As the designer, producer, and liaison of the art department, I thrive on a collaborative environment with other creative talents.
I have had variety of career challenges ranging from traditional to avant-garde—classical to contemporary—and futuristic to historically accurate. I have worked with concepts as diverse as character studies to bold graphic displays.
Most recently I collaborated with Target and Best Buy, for Broadcast and New Content media. For them, I created a style guide and art directed in-store film shoots. All working directly with these clients, their advertising agencies and their production companies.
While I am based in the fly-over city of Minneapolis, I have worked in cities all across the U.S. and Canada
I am passionate about what I do and am always looking for new opportunities and new ways to challenge myself creatively.
