Why you enjoy doing what you are doing now?

I love being a creative in the ad industry because it challenges me to never repeat myself. Every project is unique. Sometimes the outcome comes in the form of a film; other times it’s building an interactive experience. If it’s really special, it might be prototyping technologies in ways that have never been done before.

What you have learned at FIT that have helped you get your career started?

A&DD BFA taught me to never wait for an opportunity to be handed to me. If I wanted to see change, I had to gather with the right people and make it happen.

What’s the one advise that you would give to students pursuing a career in advertising and digital design?

Never be complacent. Be the voice in the room that’s not satisfied with good enough. Be proactive and always bring more to the table without waiting for permission. Talent and hunger don’t go unnoticed.
