A 20-Year resume of helping startup businesses launch successfully.
Working for a company is one thing. Helping build an organization from the ground floor is another. I’ve had the privilege and excitement of working with several major media, technology, medical and entertainment companies. Two decades of hands-on experience in creative development, platform architecture, marketing strategies, growth hacking techniques and business plan implementation that turn start-ups into a profitable, successful companies.
The core of my work style is effective communication. When it comes to management or deadlines, I pride myself on communicating at every stage of the project. Whether things are going according to plan—or have taken an unexpected turn—my clients, staff, and investors are part of an on-going conversation focused on delivering results. I don’t believe in surprises.

WHAT I ENJOY MOST
André is the easiest to talk to and the most inspiring creative director I've had the chance to work with. He's a great designer with fantastic client skills. His ability to convey ideas and execute projects is very professional and yet always keeps the job fun no mater the level of creative freedom. I look forward to working with Dre again soon

Andre is an incredible artist! He has an unparalleled ability to transform lackluster brand messaging/advertising into a 3 dimensional entertainment experience. Andre's designs are truly the best in the business. As a testament to Andre's work, clients have been known to re-purpose his in-video placements, originally created for Internet distribution, and aired them within programming on prime-time broadcast television.
