Summary: Hello! For the last 2.5 years I have been managing the Digital Asset Management System for a large, 360 advertising agency in Chicago, IL. When I was brought on board, this DAM did not exist. It was merely a wire frame idea in the form of a side project for two folks who worked here prior to me. I have managed the project from that point until now, creating the process for the entire agency and implementing it to all 500+ employees, including training. Over time, veterans of the agency went from saying “do we have to change?” to “when will it be ready for us?” The project turned into a department of 5 people in which I manage their day-to-day activity, in addition to creating new processes and problem solving to continue improving the agency as we evolve.
I’m looking to grow my experience further: I love the concept of DAM – the organization, the structure, the research, the ever-growing knowledge acquisition. This work makes me happy and I’m good at it. My attention to detail borders anal-retentive (in the best way possible) and I thrive in helping others.
