I’m a graphic artist originally from New York, and currently live near my son in Berlin, Germany. I’ll tell you what, its never boring raising a child in a country and culture thats different from your own. Since I left NYC I’ve been fortunate to apply my skills on a project by project basis here in Berlin as well as provide creative and marketing direction for a NY client in the aviation industry. This varied and conceptually deep work in particular is what I enjoy the most, to be involved from the earliest stages possible to contribute comprehensively to a strategy and its execution across the web, social and print platforms.
My current skill set is built to support businesses achieve their goals utilizing my expertise in developing artwork, fashioning copy, and finally managing & executing campaigns. My technical background in software continues to grow in a never-ending quest to be as versatile as possible. Because of this pursuit I’ve acquired the necessary web development skills which can be applied to front-end web development as well as HTML email marketing. Finally, the latest addition to my arsenal has been to truly manage a client and an account through marketing communication, media planning, and client communications.
The most satisfying development over the last 5 years has been the control I’ve claimed over my work day. I cherish this freedom which encourages me to secure it further through new clients and work experiences. I’m an adaptable kind and can settle into any studio situation whether its a large advertising agency or small design boutique. This versatility is a great asset especially when combined with the technical skills & experience acquired over the years. In 3-5 years I would ideally be secure in my network and future prospects to stand truly independently as a vendor for agencies or a service for small business.
Whether its a series of paintings, a print/web campaign, or the establishment of a brand, I see the creative results as a reinforcement of a concept. For this reason ideally I’d like to create the copy AND artwork that appears across the main platforms of web, social and print. I’m interested in working with firms and agencies that want to grow and believe in the contributions communication can make to achieving that goal. If I can provide any of my capabilities for a small business or a limited time project, I’m easy to find through email or Skype, or if your in Germany (Bitte rufen mir an!
