I can steward an art department, or roll up my sleeves on a difficult project with a tight timeline. I've worked at agencies and on product teams in-house.
As a former teaching assistant at a nursery school and a community center volunteer, I understand what it means to set clear goals and mentor the team to success.
I worked on a massive NHS project, managing creatives in another location, and delivered on brief and on budget. How does that happen?
Brainstorming, sketching, UX-ing, listening and iterating with the team. This will always ensure the effective execution of concepts, because there will be buy-in from everyone.
