Freelance art and creative direction | seriph
09/1997 - present
This is my personal gallery of sorts. The name came to me in a delirium while on my third all-nighter junior year in college and stems from a misspelling of the word seraphim or seraph – the highest of the nine orders of angels in medieval angelology. While contracting I’ve had the opportunities to work on projects with various clients including Acura, B-Reel, Cole & Weber, Digitas, Exopolis, Nike, Ogilvy & Mather and Stila.
Creative Digital Director | Lipman

Associate Creative Director | Ogilvy
Worked as a creative lead on the redesign and re-architecture of DuPont’s global digital presence. This vast undertaking will allow users more intuitive and relevant pathways into DuPont’s 30,000 plus offerings through major digital platforms – desktop, tablet and mobile. The project has been a cross disciplinary effort, with creative, user experience, content strategy, and brand teams working together to holistically address and solve challenges. I am also overseeing the early adoption of the new platform and digital re-thinking with four of DuPont’s major business units.
Other projects I have been involved with at Ogilvy include leading creative for two pitches, launching the Ogilvy global holiday card (in this case a multi-user HTML5 game), as well as work across both the Time Warner Cable and Slim Fast accounts.
Senior Art Director | Razorfish
I’ve worked on the corporate redesign of razorfish.com, collaborated on strategic and user experience thinking for fordvehicles.com, helped design a music player and music section for Terra, the largest portal site in Latin America, worked on the Mercedes-Benz account working on re-thinking their US site and completed an online presence for the new E-Class launch and contributed to multiple pitches including Chanel, gucci and Nextel South America. On the Axe account I helped launched a true Axe home brand experience that will house all their content following a holder site for Axe Hair. Also recently launched is a nation college aimed contest from TIAA-CREF asking for idea submissions on how to Raise America’s Savings rates which received press from both the New York Times and TIME. I concluded my time there working on the Ford Automotive account.
Senior Art Director | Genex
I worked directly with the creative director on the Acura account to design and art direct the TSX and RDX feature/launch sites (among other projects). These sites promoted and provided information about newly redesigned or newly released Acura vehicles.
