My approach to any project is always dictated by story. Story is what holds an audience captive and creates emotional impact, and I believe it is the roadmap for a successful project. Experience has taught me how to identify story quickly and efficiently tell it in a impactful way (no matter the subject or asset limitations). This philosophy goes above any technical software abilities. That said, I do have many years of experience in the Adobe Creative suite and know how to quickly execute creative decisions with the stroke of a key.
The common denominator in all of my projects is collaboration. A truly successful project comes to fruition when teams work together in open communication for a common cause.
I look forward to learning about your creative ideas and bringing them to life.
