Hi. I'm currently the Global Creative Director of FLOWFUSHI, a Tokyo-based cosmetics company, leading them through a rebrand for the global market and a 2019 US launch.
Prior to this role, I was Executive Creative Director of WONGDOODY LA for four years, where I developed the Wongtern internship program, launched the Women in Advertising scholarship, led a refresh of the agency identity, and helped WONGDOODY win an Ad Age’s Small Agency of the Year award, twice. I also co-founded of the consultancy June Cleaver Is Dead, which explores how marketers can better understand and connect with moms today. I recently wrote a blog entry that got a spot pulled off the air. It needed to go.
Before that I was Creative Director at Creature in Seattle for 3 years, leading the agency's two biggest clients, Dickies and Truvia. I also helped launch the "n An Absolut World" campaign for Absolut Vodka, the brand's first new campaign in 20 years, while at TBWA Chiat/Day New York.
My awards include Cannes Lions, D&AD, One Show, Communications Arts Design Annual and Ad Annual – and I have judged One Show, Communication Arts, The 3% Conference Athena Awards, the AdAge Small Agency Awards, Clios, and whole lotta regional shows. I am also lucky to be the mom to creative and very silly nine-year old identical twin boys.
