About Me

I’m an award winning creative manager, producer, and art director in Minnesota with twenty years of experience creating media that informs, inspires, and motivates audiences. I have the skills needed to lead teams, collaborate in large scale productions, or operate as a one man band. I write, direct, shoot, edit, animate, and more.

As a creative manager I’ve been at the heart of campaign and brand ideation and development. I led design and copy teams in the execution of large campaigns and day to day web operation for a large multi-category retailer. I also managed the in-house post production team with multiple editors and animators in that same high volume company. I tackled complex process problems, managed department budgets, negotiated rates with vendors and agencies, and managed schedules.

As a producer I’ve created dozens of national TV commercials as well as hundreds of on-air content and campaign packages. I’ve made training videos, web tutorials, web animations, independent documentaries, and more. I believe firmly in collaboration and enjoy working with clients and other creative and marketing professionals as we work towards the creation of stunning media.
As a current Senior Multimedia Designer at ShopHQ, I had the opportunity to report to Terry Pounds for over the course of six months. My experience as one of his direct reports has been immensely rewarding, and Terry is one of the reasons why I enjoy coming to work every day. He is honest, dependable and incredibly passionate about the work he puts forth.

With his background and expertise in Art Direction and Producing, he executed numerous campaigns that inspired successful deliverables. His knowledge was a huge advantage to the team and success of the company. Because of his leadership skills, Terry was promoted to Creative Manager where he increased efficiency and fostered positive discussions to bring out the best in his employees.

Without a doubt, I can confidently say Terry would be a huge asset to any team. He is an absolute joy to work with and a true team player. I know he will thrive in his next role and look forward to watching him succeed.
