I am a Polish-born, Chicago-based, award-winning creative director, designer and educator with a proven track record of strategy and design. My background includes eighteen years of creative leadership of collective courage, branding, consumer packaging, print, digital and interactive design.

I’ve had the opportunity to work with large corporate entities, major Hollywood and independent film studios, law-makers, local, state and federal governments as well as non-for-profits.

I’ve had the privilege to build teams, lead teams, manage brands, develop new product lines, oversee production, direct operations, create + maintain budgets, meet ridiculous deadlines and satisfy seemingly unattainable creative brief objectives.

During the last eighteen years, I have been able to give back to the creative community as a part-time and full-time faculty graphic design instructor at the undergraduate level. I designed and taught over a dozen courses, including layout, typography, corporate identity, creative advertising and portfolio. Teaching has been an incredibly rewarding opportunity—a chance to share my professional experience and knowledge with up-and-coming creative talent.

Currently, I am the Chair of the Department of Art, an Associate Professor and head of Graphic Design program at Elmhurst University in Elmhurst, IL.

I’m available for collaborations both with agencies as well as individuals.
