Story Lead/Creative Director

Epipheo

As Story Lead I worked directly with clients to discover why their business matters to humans. I then took that epiphany and communicated it through animation. My tasks included developing the story, pitching that story to clients, directing a team of creatives, creating client deliverables, voice-overs, and incorporating client feedback.
The final videos were then used to clearly and concisely communicate a product's complexity and value.

Multimedia Designer

Rick Warner & Associates, Inc.

I was brought on to create an in-house video production workflow. RWA produces nearly all the TV spots for Kerry Automotive and prior to my hiring was using freelancers to do so. The workflow consisted of scripting, producing live video, outsourcing VO work, creating on-screen graphics, editing, distribution, and file storage. We produced an average of 30 TV spots per month with this system.

I also assisted in developing and maintaining several websites, creating email blasts and social media marketing, as well as static and animated online advertising.  Print work included newspaper advertisements, outdoor boards, posters, point of purchase signage, and mailers.

Event Promotion/Production/Ticketing

RWA Tickets

After acts were booked I worked with a small team on promotion, ticketing, and production. Event promotion consisted of creating advertising for social media, print, radio, and television. For ticketing, I was responsible for vetting 3rd party ticketing agencies and integrating one into the existing workflow. I also built a mobile box office system which included point of sale and scanners. Production involved everything from set up to tear down. Events included the Fall/Winter concert series at the Newport Syndicate, Glier's GoettaFest, Alexandria Fair, Sycamore Township Fair, and many others.
