About Me

TL;DR

I make creative things for brands that I love — videos, written content, events, integrated marketing plans, and whatever else will make an impact to grow your audience in a genuine way. Seven years of experience in the advertising, design, nonprofit, and tech startup industries have given me a unique perspective on how all media can be interconnected to tell a compelling brand story. I'd be thrilled to help tell yours.

   

PROFESSIONAL

I am currently a Content Producer at Skillshare.com – an online learning community teaching creative professional skills to over 2 million students. My team is responsible for producing high-quality video classes with top influencers and companies across Design, Photography, Marketing, Business, Writing and Film.

I've produced videos and managed relationships with Skillshare's top-tier partners, including Twitter, Kickstarter, Wacom, MailChimp, Getty Images, Bloglovin', Patreon, Jessica Walsh, Keith Yamashita, Mikey Burton, and DKNG Studios.

The classes I produced have generated over 2 million site visits and 200,000 enrollments to Skillshare, resulting in a high level of user engagement (5 million minutes watched), retention, and paid upgrades to Premium Membership.

   

Previously, I was the Director of Community at the Art Directors Club (ADC Global), leading creative production, membership, events, and digital/social content strategy to grow the club's online and offline communities.

Highlights include bringing to life the 3-day ADC Festival of Art and Craft in Miami Beach; managing creative assets, event production and social media strategy for Portfolio Night™ (the world's largest simultaneous advertising portfolio review and recruitment event); producing the club's iconic rebranding, Webby-nominated site redesign, and award-winning iPad app/case. Not to mention, growing ADC's online community to over 350,000.

   

Prior to that, I cut my teeth as a copywriter at Masterminds Advertising, specializing in social media and digital concepts as well as TV and radio scripts. I helped build a social media content team and app development studio at the agency, which now influences the majority of their work.

   

PERSONAL

Born and raised in New Jersey by a chef and a writer, I grew up with a built-in passion for creativity. Shadowing my grandparents in their wildlife art gallery only added to my curiosity for making things. I now live in the Lower East Side of Manhattan with my girlfriend (and plans to add a dog soon). More often than not, you can catch me wandering around NYC — taking photos, eating, and making sure Fitbit doesn't yell at me.

Let's connect on LinkedIn and Twitter, and maybe even chat over a real-life beer.
