HEY. I'M CRYSTAL

profilepic_red.jpg

I'm a Chicago-based Art Director with a passion for advertising. I'm a designer, story-teller, leader, and collaborator. I'm currently working as the Art and Marketing Director at an IT Consulting start-up. Being in this position at a small company has given me the opportunity to wear more hats than I ever thought possible! I do a little bit of everything. The biggest advantage is learning more about the strategic side of marketing while still improving my design and conceptual skills.

I'm on the hunt for new creative challenges and excited for the wisdom and experience these adventures will bring me. I believe good things come to people who work their asses off to get where they want to be. Some may say I am a perfectionist when it comes to my work, and I would probably agree. 

 

Creating for a living is a dream come true. Living your dream...is living.
