Guiding the Creative Process
Define & Discover
Ask questions. Gain insights to your brand, your voice, and your audience. Ultimately, these are the most crucial connections to brand loyalty, customer satisfaction, and reaching your business goals.
Concept & Create
This is where the metaphorical rubber meets the road. I take the newly discovered brand insights, customer knowledge, and project goals and requirements and mold them into a unique, relevant, and engaging sensory experiences.
Implement & Integrate
Roll it out! Integration with existing technologies, vendor distribution specifications, legacy systems, or campaign timelines. I understand, appreciate, and can help plan for these additional requirements.
Evaluate & Improve
Measuring is a key ingredient to the process. Did we accomplish the goals? What worked well? What can we change or improve? Evaluation leads to discovery… which brings us back to the beginning!
I Put Customers First Video
Concept, production, casting, direction, shooting, and post-production for this Home Depot video celebrating their unique customer service culture.
The Home Depot wanted to highlight the unique, challenging, yet rewarding nature of serving customers in their stores. Diversity, problem solving were client requirements as well. We decided to do a voice over narration with scenes highlighting the customer/associate relationships.

Communication & Collaboration
This is essential in business, but it is exponentially more important in the business of creativity. Creative can be a very subjective experience. The importance of hearing and conveying expectations, motivations, intentions, etc. becomes magnified in a collaborative creative setting.
How do we best communicate with the audience? How do we complete this project on time? How do we accomplish the stated goals of this marketing strategy? Professional creativity is about knowing how to use creative to solve business problems.
Being a competent creative professional means more than having big ideas. It means finding amazing creative solutions that fit within predefined criteria like budgets, timelines, brand standards, and other creative resources. I call it pragmatic idealism.
Perspective, best practices, innovation, efficiency, communication, inspiration. I am a servant leader with a lead from the front philosophy. Finding and keeping the best people is a complex and sometimes daunting process. It starts and ends with meaningful relationships. Take care of your people and they’ll take care of you.
We get hired not just based on our creative abilities, but on our ability to listen to our clients’ needs, to keep them in the loop throughout the process, to provide constructive feedback, and to maintain composure when things go wrong (and they will go wrong).
Every successful creative execution starts with strategic ideas and innovative thinking to meet market changes, researching business objectives, assessing the competitive landscape, keeping up with creative industry trends, and supporting strategic plans.
