Steph is an award-winning art director who lives, works, and plays in sunny Los Angeles. She currently works at TBWA\Chiat\Day with her rad Brazilian writing partner Paula. When she’s not making ads she’s usually surfing, skating, or behind a camera.

She has worked on projects across almost every industry: auto (Subaru), sports (Gatorade, GoPro), arts & entertainment (The Grammy Awards, Pacific Standard Time), tech (Best Buy, Netflix), food & bev (Heineken, BJs Restaurant, Arby’s, Buffalo Wild Wings), CPG (Hormel, Kraft, GNC), finance (US Bank, MetLife, Quickbooks), non-profit (Big Brothers Big Sisters), and several fashion brands.

Her work for Gatorade and The Grammy Awards have earned top accolades from Cannes, The Clios, D&AD, and the One Show.

Outside of the agency world, Steph is a creative director and photographer for The Gnar Gnar Honeys, a collective of creative women whose goal is to increase diversity and female representation in the male-dominated action sports industry. The Honeys work with fashion, lifestyle, and sports brands to produce original content with a fresh female perspective.
