ABOUT

I’m an independent creator and collaborator with 10+ years of practical experience. Across those years, I have been fortunate to have worked with brands like Apple, Google, Beats, Fila, Alo, Nixon, Volcom, Red Bull, etc. etc.

While I’ve spent a (relatively) long time in the design world, I’ve pursued a path in which I've remained hands-on throughout. While I have experience managing teams, my current interest is more hands-on, in synthesizing unique art directions and thoughtful strategy. In general I try to approach design with an intent focus on details, not feeling predictable, all while offering tangible business solutions; resulting in several SOTD, a few SOTY awards, and often exceeding initial KPIs.

The bulk of my work is in the interactive space, but my experience and interests are far broader. I'm constantly exploring new forms/mediums of creative output as different needs arise, and am always keen to try something new.

Below is the 'professional' path I've taken to this point:

Status
(Updated – 11.11.21)

Right now I'm working with the fine fine people @ CTHDRL through the end of the year (+ through Jan). I also have several side collaborations in the works too, so I'm rather busy at the moment. While I might not be able to do much in the way of additional work, I'm keen to start conversations and connect with the right people to work with in the future when my availability could allow for it.

REcognition

While I typically don't hold awards in too high regard, I suppose they are some for validation that the work I did wasn't a total shit show. Here's all the ones I can remember:
