My ability to calmly and efficiently move a project from start to finish helps define me as a successful manager. Being hands-on, I mitigate problems and jump in when necessary to ensure a timely delivery.
During my twelve years as art director at Kirchoff/Wohlberg, Inc., I managed a staff of designers, production artists, photo researchers, illustrators, and pre-press professionals to create books for the vast K-12 school market. When K/W closed, I became production director at Q2A/Bill Smith, where I worked successfully with PitStop and CMS systems: K4, Woodwings, MediaBin, and Alfresco.
As art director and advisor for Valentine New York, I design and lay out all publications (high-end art magazines and coffee table books) and deliver final PDFs to the printer.
