Professional Experience

2bMedia (Owner/Founder)

Commercial Arts (advertising/design)
Independent Contractor
Delivered project management, art direction, creative design services, illustration talent, studio and pre-press production expertise. My skills were developed in the days of manually created art, layouts and mechanicals, and carry forward to present day digital media formats. Varied project engagements have involved on-site, full-time project management to short-turn-around deliverables and offsite service support. I am a collaborative worker and hands-on manager bringing a depth of experience and maturity to modern day creative departments.

The Limulus Group (Founder/Partner)

Operations Head
This venture expands upon a natural, fresh and exciting direction my work has gravitated toward, capitalizing upon substantial experiences as a business owner/manager. Focus on outsourced site management and business development services for small to mid-sized companies, located anywhere, and in a variety of industries; general office and staffing management, operations design, and communications efficiencies. Strength as a "chief problem solver" rooted in an ability to listen and understand needs, and then translate them into successful solutions.

Client Stories

E-Commerce: Worked closely with a client to create a fee-based electronics industry web portal, with international scope, where industry buyers, sellers, distributors, and OEMs could post and view excess inventories of other companies. Using a simple, intuitive web-interface, prospective buyers and sellers, who are members, can create RFQs, negotiate with other members, and finally create POs to solidify a deal. The owner could view, moderate and control all activities on the site as well as use compiled data for related marketing programs. We were responsible for the functional design, programming and database work.

E-Promotion: Simple, elegant web site for a renowned licensed psychologist who focuses on families, couples, parenting, aging well and stress management. Site keeps viewers up-to-date with TV, radio, keynote and lecture appearances, published books and other related information.

Corporate Image: Client was a designer and manufacturer of bottling equipment and production lines with customers around the globe. We created a new logo and overall corporate identity program that updated the design and effectiveness of the company's printed documentation procedures and marketing materials. We assisted in incorporating this new work, and bringing the company's US and European offices into the fully-functional, more efficient world of digital marketing.

Organizational Design: A follow-on contract with the same bottling equipment client involved providing short-term (18 months) site management and process redesign for their New Jersey terminal operations. Shipping management consulting services included procedure design and scheduling for efficient internal readiness, as well as for dealing with outside contractors for services (containers, loading, inspections, paperwork and insurance for international trade).

Original Artworks: Commissioned to design original artwork for murals now installed at Fortune 100 media corporation NYC headquarters. Artistic lead and project management included bid preparation, design, process and quality control with client, architects, interior design, production and installation companies.
