Currently, I am the Creative Director for Grandesign Media Services, an experiential marketing agency, but let’s start at the beginning…
After graduating San Diego State with a degree in Public Relations and a minor in Marketing I took a low paying PR internship and a part time job bar backing at a luxury hotel. I convinced the hotel manager to hire me to design their nightclub flyers. Within a few months, I was hired full to create all of the hotel’s marketing materials.
I then worked for AutoAnything (a division of AutoZone) in both the SEO and Creative Department. After a few years, I found a graphic designer position at Hadley Media on Craigslist… yeah….Craigslist.
After several years, Hadley Media was acquired by Grandesign, which brings us to the present.
As Creative Director, I lead our experiential team in concept ideation to pitch decks to overseeing the creative execution of projects. I also work closely with our Executive team to uphold creative constancy throughout the whole company.
Every project is completely unique which is why I love my job and experiential marketing! I’ve designed floating islands for TV shows, obstacles courses for major movies and liquid nitrogen ice cream parlors for video games. I can’t wait to see what I’ll be up to next!
