Art Directors Club Board Member
I joined the ADC as a board member and volunteered my time on several committees including the young guns committee helping to steer it towards a self disciplining culture run by young guns with Rei Inamoto. Also I served on the nominating and where I defines a muti-year plan to redevelop the board.
Art Director Club President
In 2008 I was voted to be the President of the Art Directors Club. At age 33 I was awe struck that in some was I was being asked to drive this organization that had been going since 1920.
I served a 3 year term as board member along side some of the most talented people in the business of design, communications and advertising.
I had the exciting opportunity of rebranding the club bringing in new leadership, and redefining programing. During my tenure we brought in Youtube as a partner to develop stronger connections with digital communications platforms. I also helped bring in modern systems for staff communications including the use of google apps.
In 2011 after being president of the club for 3 years, the role of the president shifts into an advisory capacity. In this role I have limited responsibility but must remain as an advisor to the president of the club, currently Benjamin Palmer, CEO of the Barbarian Group. In this capacity I am able to bring together a group of former presidents as an advisory group to the current leadership of the organization. Some of the former presidents include George Lois, Bob Greenberg, Paul Lavoie, amongst others.
