I’m an independent design director and collaborator with ~15 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, and in synthesizing unique brand/art directions with thoughtful strategy. In general, I try to approach design with an intent focus on capturing a feeling that doesn't feel predictable, while offering tangible business solutions. This approach has resulted in several SOTD, a few SOTY awards, and often exceeding initial KPIs.
While the bulk of my work is in the interactive marketing and e-comm spaces, I'm currently prioritizing branding opportunities– both as a freelance resource or as a brand partner. My experience and interests are go far broader into tangential fields.. I'm constantly exploring new forms/mediums of creative output as different needs arise– such as video production, music production, font design, 3D modeling, etc.– so I readily welcome a challenge.
Below is the career path I've taken to this point:
Right now I'm taking some time off to focus on personal projects, but am looking to book freelance opportunities beginning in July.
I also am open to considering full-time opportunities at this time. I'm very happy with the freelance lifestyle, but coming onboard to help build something is of high interest if the fit is there.
At the moment I'm prioritizing paid / remote / contract opportunities, but I'm always keeping an eye out for any potential passion projects, collaborations, or full-time opportunities... so if you have any or all in mind, please reach out.
Below are lists of my collaborative offerings, and some verticals I personally gravitate towards:
These lists are slightly truncated, so if you have something in mind thats tangential or might peak my interest, don't be shy about reaching out.
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:
