“I put the creative meat on the strategic bones to give a client’s vision and messaging an emotional appeal.”

What I do at Willow...

I guide the creative team and oversee the vision and messaging that becomes the final creative product for our clients.

The thing I would do for free...

I would cook. Not because I ever aspired to be a chef, but because I love interpreting recipes and creating something just slightly different by experimenting with ingredients. It’s more about creative expression than culinary aspiration.

The biggest misconception about my job...

That creativity can be turned on or off on demand.

Most valuable lesson I’ve learned…

Speak up for your vision.

How I try to make the world better...

Well, I have to admit they haven’t seen much of me lately, but I’ve always enjoyed working at St. Vincent de Paul’s soup kitchen. I need to get that back on my calendar. Note from the team: (Mark makes our world better with his tasty baked birthday treats!)

My happy place is...

Being with my family. Doesn’t matter what we’re doing. Just that we’re together.
