Creative Director/Writer

About

Hi! My name is Julie. You can call me Commissioner, Flash, or Jules if you prefer. I’ve been in this industry for quite a while and have had the privilege of working with some of the brightest and most talented minds in the business. My career has spanned two economic booms and their subsequent busts, multiple agencies, dozens of clients, two cities, and nine years of successful freelancing. I look forward to talking with you.

—  Dustin Edward Arnold, Group Creative Director, Global at DITA Eyewear

“Julie is one of the smartest people I’ve worked with. She is the perfect creative partner to develop visual ideas and narratives that are both evocative, insightful and intelligent. Besides being a talented writer and thinker, she is a pleasure to work with, and has the presentation skills, backbone, and mojo to sell ideas through with a simple brevity that I’ve been failing to replicate ever since working with her.”

 

 

—  Pari Boorer, SVP Account Director at Deutsch

“Julie is an absolute dream to work with. Not only is she a talented writer, but she understands the strategic underpinnings of the work better than almost anybody. She consistently delivers outstanding work with very tight timelines. It's no wonder clients and agency alike love her. I wish she worked on all of my projects.”
