Sep 2013 - Present (7 years 10 months)
I directly contribute to the success of each Playhouse season through design and art direction. I recommend design techniques to improve look and feel of visual content, identify and troubleshoot design related issues in a timely fashion, edit video and audio to support multimedia programs and evaluate design concepts to recommend improvements. In 2016 I played an important role in the total re branding of the Playhouse and worked closely with the design agency to bridge the gap between their vision and the daily functionality of the new brand.
