I started as a Designer working on infographics, motion graphics, reports, and websites. As a Jr. Art Director,  I learned how to balance designing with being a leader and a better communicator. Soon, I was an Art Director. I continued to work on more complex projects and support the design team. Finally I became Director of Design. It meant keeping my team motivated, busy, and creatively fulfilled while being a leader in the company. It was the most rewarding and backbreaking job I could have asked for.
