What was your very first job? 

Jr. Art Director at J. Walter Thompson (JWT), working on Ford

Please describe, in your own words, what your job is and what work it entails. 

I lead a national team of designers that supports our client facing colleagues in pursuits and day-to-day communications. Our aim is to generate new business and retain existing business through innovative presentations and proposals, differentiating our selves from the competition.

How did you discover that the creative world was right for you? Was there a time in your life that you credit to this discovery? What was there train of events that brought you to where you are today? 

My intro to creativity was via my older brother who was an automotive designer and continues to work in that field. I realized at a very young age I had a natural talent for design, which led me to explore all types of creative expression. I found my true calling at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit where I majored in Advertising Design.

In your constantly growing and expanding industry, how do you find inspiration to keep your work fresh, innovative and relevant?

I am always looking to other designers and artists for inspiration; also my team inspires me everyday. I try to expand my skill set as often as I can, most recently I have taken up motion graphic design and production.

If you had to pick one piece of work or project that you are most proud of, more for the creative work and innovation it required, rather than its recognition or industry “success,” what would it be? 

Overseeing and working with a team of passionate creative professionals at Aon has been my most fulfilling “project”.
