HIGHLIGHTS

As an ACD on Google, I lead the global creative vision and execution for the Google Assistant CRM program. I constantly strive to test new ideas, design, and technology in order to create more enjoyable and meaningful experiences for every user.

In 2017, I helped launch the program internationally and have since led multiple strategic creative evolutions, making our communications responsive, dynamic, scalable and personalized for millions of users. I now mentor a global team of copywriters, designers, production artists and collaborate with developers to deploy every touchpoint.

In 2018, our work on the program won a Platinum at the Hermes Creative Awards, Platinum at Marcom, Gold at Horizon Interactive, Certificate of Excellence at the Echos and Best Online Newsletter at Internet Advertising Competition.

I have also led the development of Google Assistant landing pages, product push notifications, and the creation and localization for the Global Google Assistant App Store and Play Store creative. I’ve worked across multiple Google accounts—creating concepts for Google Maps, emails for Google Merchant Center, Retail Ads and Google Home.

Prior to Google, I collaborated with the ECD to oversee the work of 20+ creatives to concept, present to a board of directors and win a pitch for the Gemological Institute of America business.

As a Senior Art Director, I led UX and design for the first iAd from Apple. With the dev team, I created the Dove Men+Care iAd, one of four iAds created for the 2010 WWDC conference. I developed the experiential Dove Show Us Your Skin campaign through video, an app, OLA, website and Times Square billboards and art directed a photoshoot of 30+ women.

In 2010, I created the Five Star back-to-school campaign. My hand drawn illustrations were featured in over 30 million notebooks, in-store displays, OLA, and microsite.
