My career has taken me all over the map, creatively and literally. It's led me everywhere from Joan Rivers’ closet (fabulous) to a banana farm in Panama (watch out for spiders)
As a Senior Vice-President, Creative Director at Doner Advertising, I created digital, television, print, and radio for everything from healthcare (Beaumont, PURELL), retail (JC Penney), packaged goods (Chiquita, Serta, Minute Maid), services (Progressive Insurance, Food Network), schools (Walsh College), and all things pet (American Kennel Club, Cat’s Pride, Iams). Some of my awards include a One Show pencil, Clio, D&AD, London International, Effie and a blue ribbon at the Michigan State Fair!
I've also written two non-fiction books and given many lively presentations about them throughout Michigan : Grand River Avenue: From Detroit to Lake Michigan and Iconic Restaurants of Ann Arbor (I’m a proud graduate, and fan, of the University of Michigan)
I love to find out what clients need, then find a way to give it to them.
Most of all, I love to learn--and share what I learn with my students, with great enthusiasm.
