A Creative Life

When you find something you love, seek a job where you can do that the rest of your life.  I’ve found great joy in design, creativity and theatre – deeply moved by the positive effect a handful of people can have on the world.

In my career I’ve had the opportunity to work directly with companies like Coca-Cola, Netflix, Activision, Scholastic, Microsoft, and more.  Internal and external projects that have included designing and managing campaigns across print, digital, online and video.  Projects include a mix of internal and client branding that have lead me to one truth – companies that value and invest in design are statistically more successful.

In managing a global creative team I’ve served as a leader, a mentor, and in the process learned a lot about myself.

I have a passion for musical theatre where I’ve been a performer, composed the score for two produced musicals and continue to write.  In fact, my job prior to joining YouGov (formerly Harrison Group) was on the national tour of The Scarlet Pimpernel.

On a more personal note, I’m thankful for my family.  Raising our son has brought the most challenging and rewarding experiences of my life.  When we needed it, the support was there for us, and I devote time and attention to helping others when I can.
