WHAT'S YOUR STORY? 

I'm a NYC based freelance Creative Director and writer with 12 years of experience building brands from fashion to technology, banking to non-profit, retail to B2B, packaged goods and more across a broad range of media. I'm a big idea thinker, but I also love getting my hands dirty and crafting the details that make the work "sing". I'm a writer at heart, instinctively strategic and have overseen art direction on everything from TV and catalog shoots to branding new businesses. I've led projects from ideation through production, but I'm also comfortable just jumping in anywhere in the process and being a supportive team player (which includes being able to enjoy a beer with just about anyone). I have worked full-time at various agencies in New York, including Mother, Euro RSCG, JWT and Dentsu and have been freelancing since 2012. When I'm not working, I try to spend time in my art studio, traveling with my husband and son or just kicking around and enjoying my favorite city that I'm lucky enough to call home. 

 

HOW DO WE WORK TOGETHER? 

I work both with advertising and branding agencies as well as directly with businesses and startups. I can work with a company's existing teams or partners, assemble a great collaborative freelance team or fly solo, depending on the project's needs. While I'm based in New York, my clients are global and I can travel or work remotely as needed. Big and small budgets. Long or short term projects. Coffee or beer to kick it off? 

 

WHAT DO "THEY" SAY? 

I’ve worked with Kim as a freelancer and she’s the best kind of freelancer. The kind that puts work in meetings, and that work sells. And then you want to hire her full time. Great writer, great presenter, can and will run projects. Always invested in the work. Lovely to work with. Hire her immediately and often.
— Mike Pierantozzi, Executive Creative Director @ Saatchi & Saatchi
Kim rocks. Strategically smart, super productive, can flex her style to fit the context, and a pleasure to work with.
— Neil Parker, Chief Strategy Officer @ co:collective
Kim was instrumental in helping us develop and implement a new brand voice. She applied it across various touch points, laying the groundwork for our team to emulate. She is extremely talented and just “gets it”. Kim also works very efficiently, which is always appreciated!
— Rachel Drori, Founder @ Daily Harvest
Kim is great. She can join a project on a moment’s notice and deliver smart creative ideas. She is as comfortable running an account as she is partnering with an art director as a team. She has a great understanding of all digital platforms and gets the 360 nature of content.
— Roald Van Wyk, Group Creative Director @ Razorfish
Kim is as good as it gets. Incredibly talented as both a thinker and a writer. A very hard worker. But her best attribute is how great she is as a person. Whoever you are, whatever position you are considering Kim for, hire her immediately. You will be thrilled with the result.
— Brian McDermott, Freelance Creative Director (Former CCO @ Dentsu)
