ABOUT

I have worked in advertising and marketing for all of my adult life. I began my career as a layout artist in the advertising department at Sears, Roebuck & Company when newspaper was still the most critical factor in ad budgets. I have worked as both a Creative Director and an Art Director for advertising agencies.


I was fortunate enough to have managed one of the most creative design studios on the East Coast. I have worked as Product Design and Development Manager for one of the TEXTRON companies and have been Creative Services Manager for the second largest oil company in the world.

Accounts that I have done work for include:

 

Becton-Dickinson
Black & Decker
BP
Bristol-Myers
Castrol Motor Oil
Cover Girl Cosmetics
Corning Glass
Gucci
GE Major Appliances
JCB
KOST USA
The Maryland State Lottery
M&M Mars
McCormick & Company
Rubbermaid
Westvaco

 

I graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art.

I am a veteran of the United States Army.

I speak enough Spanish and German to find a cold beer or a bathroom.
