Creative Director

Visual Capitalist and I have come a long way together. I’ve been VC’s creative director since the beginning of 2012, overseeing and creating a wide variety of data-driven media stories. Today, I act as a bridge between the media and design sides of our reporting.

Visual Capitalist one of the fastest growing media brands in the world with millions of visitors from around the world every month. Sponsored content is a big part of our success. Here are a few of the clients we’ve worked with:
