  • About
    I have been an Art Director at DDB Chicago for more than 13 years and a Group Creative Director on The Field Museum for the past five years. My brand experience includes McDonald's, Sierra Mist, State Farm, Budweiser, Anheuser Busch, Capital One, JCPenny and LensCrafters as well as producing campaigns for Temptations Cat Treats and Combos. My leadership on The Field Museum helped DDB win the 2013 Mobile Agency of the Year Award. I have also worked extensively on the Phillips brand for DDB's London office as well as helping out in various offices throughout the DDB network.

    Prior to working in Chicago, I was the Creative Director for Barnhart CMI in Denver spearheading the Microsoft, IBM and Space Imaging accounts. Before that I ran my own agency, Hildreth and Margaret for five years, specializing in marketing to non-profit clients, including the Woman's Crisis Center of Douglas County and an Anti-Gambling Campaign for Manitou Springs.

    Throughout my career I have won EFFIES, Addy's, CLIO's and Mobius awards and my work has been featured on the cover of Ad Age and in both Luerzer’s International Archive and Communications Arts.

    On my own time I am working on a woman's museum and am still trying to find my way through life as a Google Glass Explorer.
