15 years ago, I established Square One Creative, which specializes in developing creative, effective marketing communications. My experience includes working at many of the largest advertising, marketing and graphic design agencies in the San Francisco Bay Area, including Ogilvy & Mather, McCann Erickson and Ketchum. I've served as an award-winning art director, designer, writer and creative director; working with national clients. Clients have included Wells Fargo Bank, Capital One, Hunt Wesson, Dole and Del Monte Food brands, Hewlett Packard, Clorox Brands, LeapFrog and Pfizer, to name a few. Square OneCreative presently serves a wide variety of business and nonprofit clients. I've been an instructor at the Academy of Art, SF, teaching both Integrated Marketing and Graphic Design. I also volunteer my writing and design skills to support the missions of local nonprofits. I've developed systematic methods for helping clients achieve their marketing and communications goals. I believe creativity is the key to success for any endeavor, and am passionate about enabling individuals and organizations to tap into their own creative spark!
