WHO

First and foremost, I am a creative designer. Yet, I do not practice
“creative for creative’s” sake. My work is always the meaningful end
product of a carefully thought out marketing strategy. I do not immediately assume the solution to a client’s problem. Great creative power can only be
the result of great marketing discipline.

I have an enviable track record of staying within budget by estimating
accurately and controlling costs at every step of the production process.
Work does not begin until a client approves and signs estimates.

WHAT

I believe in developing a communications plan, an umbrella that covers the
entire spectrum of the marketing mix. True insight into your needs can only be developed by evaluating the whole picture.

I believe in looking at your communications expenditures as an investment,
one that should work hard at giving you a return. I take a very prudent approach with your money. Every conceivable step is taken to ensure you get
the very most out of every communications dollar you spend.

I believe in big ideas.

HOW

Everything I do is designed to contribute to our client’s success.
First I do my homework. The legal profession likes to refer to this as
“due diligence.” I educate myself at my expense, not yours.
I know how to study. And quickly.

No matter how educated I become about your company, I will never
tell you how to run your business. My job is to promote your business.
I continually look at myself as your creative partner who not only shares
in your problems, but also in your visions.
