I started bd terminal as a way to translate my global brand experience to help lifestyle start-ups. As I've moved through my career – quite literally – I've been inspired by the agencies, brands, cities and people I've encountered. I was fortunate enough to help launch offices for The Integer Group in Paris and New York, led global beauty businesses in the city of light, traveled the world for Team One Advertising doing shoots for Lexus, launched the Blue Moon "Artfully Crafted" campaign while in Denver during the craft beer boom and partnered on a tech start-up in the extraordinary city of Stockholm. The common threads are my excitement over innovative work, curiosity and belief in the power of brands and their stories. I love strategic planning and marketing because it is the blend of my two passions - psychology meets creativity. So, I am grateful to be able to help people and companies follow their passion and move their ideas forward using the skills I have.
CREATIVE DIRECTOR / DESIGNER
A lover of all things visual – be it the imprint of ink, the movement of pixels, a swash of fabric or the click of a shutter – all mediums captivate and inspire me. After graduating from design school in Atlanta, I set out for LA and was fortunate enough to make my passion my trade. For the last 17 years, I have been immersed in the fields of advertising, marketing, branding, fashion, events and entertainment. I worked agency-side at award-winning companies such as Deutsch and Team One Advertising to create innovative visual branding for Mitsubishi and Ritz-Carlton. Designing in-house for Alternative Apparel, I helped develop their identity through branded materials, merchandise and photo shoots. Years later, I landed at renowned experiential branding agency, Creative Intelligence, and helped brand events for the most demanding of clients. But my most passionate adventure to date was co-founding a company specializing in bespoke design and letterpressed goods because who doesn’t love a beautiful card in their hands?
