- Location Atlanta, United States

- Experience 14 years
I started my creative career as an entrepreneur and a freelance designer. Working on projects including, but not limited to: interviewing musicians, designing vehicle wraps, creating animations, editing videos, and designing and building websites. I had clients, usually small businesses that needed to be very strategic and cost effective with their marketing dollars. This helped train me in assessing client problems and how to solve them. I believe the client is always right, they just don’t always say what they really want. As part of a collaborative effort, it’s my job to help decipher this code and make something beautiful. Being in rapidly changing environments like web solutions and online marketing has forced me to stay learning and abreast of the industry trends and constants. As I’ve gotten the opportunity to work with larger agencies and clients with bigger budgets, I have applied these attributes to build stronger agency-client relationships, ultimately leading to more effective campaigns, projects and solutions. I’ve worked on large film and video productions. I’ve led and coordinated the collaboration between creative and development in the production of large websites. I’ve mentored and led art directors and copywriters all stemming from my three basic principles – know your stuff. Work hard. And don’t be a jerk.

Lotenna has been very forward-thinking in the way he handles his career. He's always thinking of ways to extend his reach (such as Linked In) and seems to be broadening his horizons. I've known Lotenna for 3 years now, I think, and I've only ever known him to be positive and professional in his dealings with me. I've never known him to be in a bad mood.

Senior UX Designer at The Home Depot
Lotenna is truly a forward-thinking designer and art director. As trends come and go, he keeps his finger on the pulse of what's hot now and where things are going. When we worked together at IHG he could take the mundane project and add some serious spice to make it a real stand out piece. He's fun to work with and his feedback is informative and helped me see where things were blah. He'll then suggest things that can bring it together and elevate it to the next level. I would love to have our careers cross paths so I could work with him again.

Lotenna is one of the best, most efficient and creative Designers I have ever worked with. He delivered work I always knew the client would love. He returned precisely revised Creative--no matter how intense the legal/regulatory feedback or red ink.
Technology Director at Huge
Finding truly "digitally native" creatives is a rare thing in many agencies. The larger the agency, the bigger the challenge. Lotenna consistently delivered tightly integrated, digitally savvy ideas across multiple accounts and it was a pleasure to be a part of any team that he was a part of. Recently, over the holidays, we worked together on a case study project that my group developed and he just immediately "got it". Within days he had put together the idea, coordinated the assets, and not only delivered an amazing bit of creative, but wound up improving the creative output of the original project! I loved his energy, infectious enthusiasm, and his genuinely collaborative nature. It's the combination of skills and attributes that make truly creative leaders stand out in today's agency environment.
Broadcast Producer at Moxie
Lo is passionate, detail-oriented and tireless in his commitment to making outstanding work. We worked on several projects together and no matter the challenge, Lo steps up to get the job done. He keeps his calm during the most trying situations and offers solutions at every turn. It is a true pleasure to work with him.
Creative Director / Art Director
If you are looking for an art director with a sense of design, style, popular culture, and taste, paired with great conceptual skills, you need look no further than Lo. As more of an emphasis is put on creating content for brands - this can be difficult for an agency to staff against this new model. The trick is to find people who can pair the impeccable eye, and executional standards that make for great fashion advertising, with the conceptual, intellectual, and strategic thinking that makes for great advertising. Lo has this rare combination. He is remarkably “tapped in.” Not just to the visual world, but also to all facets of culture. He has a refreshingly intellectual approach to a largely instinctive profession. Not unimportantly, he’s also a helluva nice guy who was a pleasure to work with. For the right account, Lo is an excellent find. I’ve come across few art directors with his unique combination of skills.
Associate Creative Director at Moxie (US)
I’ve recently worked with Lo here at Moxie on a TV campaign for Nationwide Insurance. In addition to being strong conceptually, Lo knows all aspects of social media backwards and forwards. He’s a very hard worker who keeps his cool under pressure. He’s also a good person who’s fun to be around. Hopefully I’ll have the opportunity to work with Lo again in the near future.
