Production Artist, Madison Avenue

I began my NYC graphics career as a freelance production artist and art director in numerous Madison Avenue studios, such as Saatchi & Saatchi, Foote Cone & Belding, DesGrippé Gobé, DePlano and Badalato-Ginsberg. I absorbed industry graphics standards while working on pharmaceutical and banking accounts alongside experienced art directors, account managers, pre-press/mock-up magicians. My Quark, Illustrator & Photoshop skills blossomed in these demanding studio workflows, igniting a lifelong hunger for software expertise, and allowing me to find employment in production while my portfolio was filling out. As I commuted back and forth from Brooklyn, moving from project to project, I began to believe in the Woody Allen quote that 80% of life is showing up,…adding Quark skills and a fresh shirt to the formula. 2000-2005.
