A strong creative mind requires a vivid imagination and an intuitive connection to the brilliant, fearless thinking that comes naturally to children. These are just a few of the reasons why I love to work on projects connected to toys, learning, and playing.

MAKERBOT DIGITAL STORE

I was approached by MakerBot, the leading name in consumer 3-D printing to provide content and character development for a variety of toy and figurine collections to be sold (as downloads for 3-D printing your own) through their digital store. I wrote script treatments, product descriptions, instructions and more.

TOY FAIR

The largest toy industry show in the Western hemisphere happens at the Javits Center in NYC.

In the late 2000’s I worked with FDT design to craft the language for a multi-year advertising and branding campaign that encapsulated all show-related communications - tag lines, vendor/exhibitor materials, signage and way-finding, live blogging from related industry events, and more.
