Oversee all Communications: Design, Look/Feel, Web, Social, Video

What were some of the things that you experienced that shaped the way you approach your work?

I’ve always worked in situations where creative solutions were needed to solve problems: lack of budget/resources/staff/time/etc. – so I’ve learned to work quickly and efficiently yet still produce quality work.

What’s the one thing you wish people knew about your job?

Just how expansive it is and that I can never do all I want or think I need to do.

What is the one tool for your job that you can’t live without, and why?

MacBook Pro – I can do 99.9% of my job with this tool, anywhere, anytime.

What is the biggest mistake that you see churches making when it comes to communications and marketing?

Not telling their story well.
