I am a Bay Area designer. On paper, I have been a Creative Director, Art Director, Design Director and Designer over the last 15 years. In short, I look for creative ways to solve problems and figure out how to make them happen.
I believe simplicity always wins, so long as it doesn't lose your story and voice along the way. I believe that the words you say are as important as the style they're set in. I believe that photography is many brands' most important and most neglected asset. And I believe great work generally happens when the process is more akin to making dinner with friends, regardless of timelines or budgets.
I've worked at a number of studios and agencies, most recently having spent the last several years as a Creative Director at Character. You can view my full CV here. Whether at the helm or at the mouse (usually somewhere in between), much of the work you see reflects these experiences, and it's important to acknowledge the incredibly talented teams and partners that made many of these projects possible.
I'm currently looking for project-based engagements, contract or freelance, for companies, studios and agencies alike.
