"The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary" ~ Vidal Sassoon
Hard work is a testament to one’s success. Ten years ago, Erik started as a Production Associate in a one-man operated agency studio. He now holds the title of a Senior Art Director at The Garage Team Mazda. Throughout the years, and the long nights, his career path has been a challenge without the formal education and academic training of his coworkers. However, his dedication and accomplishments are a direct reflection of his passion. Perfecting the art of precise craftsmanship, creativity and communication for partners and clients is the most important objective. Don’t let Erik’s “play it cool” demeanor fool you. He has a fierce inner determination that is highlighted when composing projects related to social media, broadcast/content production, brand identity design, campaign development, content creation, print and still photography. Erik’s passion has been recognized and admired by his peers and earned him four Addy Awards. When not grinding away at the office, he claims to be a professional chef – in his apartment kitchen.
