Welcome to my class! I'm so glad you're here.

As a co-founder of Portfolio Studio and now founder of Portfolio MasterClass, I've helped creatives land jobs in top-notch agencies and studios in the US and around the world. My students have won numerous awards including ADDYs, Clios, and recognition in Print, How, Archive, CMYK, & Applied Arts. I've provided thousands of hours of on-ground and online instruction to students in design, advertising, communications, and technology programs.

I've been an advertising agency partner with clients in high technology, fitness, retail, real estate, healthcare, and finance. That helped me understand the ins and outs of the biz.

I know that all human beings are creative. The teaching methods I use can help you develop your creative thinking and unique talents for transformation. I look forward to working together.
