This was my ad school work that won the "Best Art Direction" and "Best in Show" in the infamous quarterly Creative Circus Student Show. I won some cash and spent it all on interview clothes and new sneakers.

Vivitar launched their first underwater digital camera, the ViviCam 8400 at London's newest entertainment district, The O2 in 2007. Vivitar suggested Londoners "Go Below H2O" through three :10 videos I produced, which aired on site during the grand opening of the venue.
Free parking, drink specials, fresh sushi and chic waterfront dining on San Diego harbor. What else do you need to make a restaurant? ...Oh, that's right, patrons. Sally's requested ideas that would get their dormant reservations line ringing. After recommending minor interior tweaks, a menu reinvention and events promotion, we devised these print ads to kickstart the makeover.
Think back to those "Must See Thursdays" of days gone by... You might have noticed a handsome young lad sandwiched inbetween your favorite "Friends," "Melrose Place," or "Veronica's Closet" episodes and wondered "Who is that guy?" That may very well be the question that continues to keep you up at night. (Sometimes I wonder the same thing). Look no further – I give you my FIRST and LAST adventures in front of the camera.
This is the first dollar bill I earned. I wonder how much it would have grown if I'd invested it back then? Hmmmm....

The mission of Gotham Volleyball is to improve the quality of life for GLBTQ individuals by building community through the sport of volleyball in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. Social Media is a huge component in keeping the league informed and motivated on and off the court. As a volunteer, I helped create a system of graphic messages for use on all social platforms for various purposes.
I’ve had the privilege of working on The Coming Out Project with Gotham Volleyball. Providing a platform for all members to share their personal coming out stories during the weeks leading up to National Coming Out Day, we’ve created a living exhibit that continues to grow and evolve every year. An annual story exhibition and video series brings members together in celebration and encourages others to experience the freedom of coming out.
Several members shared their stories in a video series, giving them an opportunity to encourage and inspire their peers and those who haven't yet made the choice to break out of the closet.
To put the struggle in perspective, we created a timeline to illustrate the leaps and bounds LGBTQ people have made in recent decades and the torchbearers who came before.
In the weeks leading up, every member was encouraged to fill out a simple card to share the details of their coming out story. All cards were displayed in the halls outside the high school gym where the league plays weekly. The display became a living exhibition that told each member's story, individually and as members of a greater community. To further detail the coming out stories of the Gotham Volleyball community at large, card data was visualized into an infographic – detailing what year the participants came out and at what age. The exhibition and data expands annually.
