SVP CREATIVE DIRECTOR Roberts+Langer DDB
February 2010 to July 2017
I was at Roberts+Langer DDB (now called Velocity OMC) for a seven and a half years.
For the last two years I was SVP/CD on Aveeno Global Beauty. The agency had the full ad business, including digital. Before being promoted to CD I was an ACD on Neutrogena and a couple of other J&J brands, like Rembrandt, as well as a good deal of behind-the-scenes strategy for Lubriderm.
I was also the key creative on the Hunter Douglas Window Fashions account, which is unique from all other categories I’ve worked on in that the purchase cycle is much longer. The last campaign we created and executed was with style icon Iris Apfel.

CoverGirl, Pantene, Max Factor: The P&G experience! I worked with Rihanna, Drew Barrymore, Stacy London, a wonderful group of fellow creatives and a great boss. I also wrote the Clairol CRM publication, called *Color Source*, which was basically like shooting and writing a magazine every quarter.

SENIOR COPYWRITER Saks Fifth Avenue May 2004 to June 2006
This is where I learned luxury fashion writing and worked on the “Saks Loves” campaign. There were always in-store events to name and I came-up with the handle for their most successful and long-running beauty event, “Brushes with Greatness.” My time at Saks (as well as on other in-house creative teams) taught me much about brick and mortar retail.
