Now located in the Sierra Foothills, I have spent the past 17 years as a designer of one form or another in the Bay Area. On paper, I have been a Creative Director, Art Director, Design Director and Designer. Regardless of titles, I look for creative ways to solve problems and figure out how to make them happen.
I love simplicity, so long as it doesn't lose your voice. I believe that the words you say are as important as the style they're set in. I think that photography is many brands most important and most neglected asset. And I know great work generally happens when the process is clear, the goal-posts are visible and everyone is in it together.
I've worked at a number of studios and agencies, most recently having spent 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 on this site 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 remote project-based engagements—contract or freelance—for companies, studios and agencies alike.
