WHAT I CAN OFFER

I have a very broad range of knowledge in several different areas, I have a great eye, I am extremely driven & hard working and to top it off I am pleasant/hilarious/positive person to work with

Creative

Not only do I have knowledge of the entire Adobe creative suite, but I also took every photograph (unless otherwise stated), chose every font & chose every color for each of my projects.

Analytical

I have overseen a number of campaigns across several markets and delivered weekly in depth analysis of delivery to ensure all advertisers are getting what they paid for.

Technical

I have experience both reading & writing HTML & CSS in addition to that I have worked extensively within the Google ad server (DFP) as both a scheduler and an administrator.

Organizational

I have scheduled over 9000 campaigns within the DFP and my error rate was less than 1% for 13 months in a row, and I attribute this to my extreme attention to detail. I create and manage an endless number of technical and creative instructional documents that are distributed company wide.

MY SKILLSET

I have a wonderfully well rounded set of skills, thanks in part to my MA in Interactive Media, but also thanks to working in ad operations for the 3rd largest publisher in the US.

DFP & DoubleClick

I have worked in DFP as both an ad trafficker as well as an administrator giving me a detailed view of all aspects of Google’s system. I have also been involved in two ad server migrations within DoubleClick.

WordPress

All of my sites are on WordPress, including: every iteration of my portfolio, blog, and all other freelance sites I’ve worked on. I am constantly learning and expanding my knowledge of WordPress.

HTML & CSS

Back in the day I built several small websites from scratch using HTML & CSS, at this point in time I read a lot more HTML in my day to day to place ads on specific pages. I use CSS frequently within my portfolio & blog to make them both perty.

Adobe Creative Suite

Illustrator and Photoshop are my two favorite Adobe programs, although I have been called a Flash ninja, alas. Though most of my time is spent in Photoshop & Illustrator, I have also worked within Dreamweaver, After Effects and InDesign.
