Skillsets are important.
I’m a proud polymath.

As a formally trained strategist with a background in traditional print and digital design. I come to you with a broad and robust skill set gained from numerous industries. My favorite teams to work with are those that encourage their talent to always think strategically.

Strategy

The Masters in Branding program taught me how to dig deep into what brands can mean and how to develop a cult following. That strategic thinking pushes me to develop truly successful solutions that have a sense of belonging.

Design

I practice strategic design, that manifests as more research and discussion on the front than endless rounds at the end. Presenting emotional stories is a no-brainer as well as switching between print and digital.

Tech

Years of hacking WordPress sites taught me invaluable coding and tech skills. That knowledge guides every pixel I push in Sketch and every prototype node connected, while developers get to work with a tech-competent designer.

Business

Owning a business is an incredible education, but scaling a large business is another story. The key to that is communication, flexibility, and patience as well as knowing that internal and external brand perception are equals.

Leadership

I define strong leadership as the ability to define expectations vs reality efficiently and empathetically. Creativity flows when the team understands the what and why to deliver without endless late nights.

AIGA

I believe you truly can’t call yourself a professional without supporting your professional organization. Since before I graduated from undergrad, I’ve been a member, conference attendee and occasional mentor.

Awards &
Engagements.

Sometimes I submit stuff and talk shop in public.

Getting up to speak in front of peers and submitting work to creative shows have capped periods of immense personal growth, embracing that vulnerability has paid off and I’ve loved every minute.

Latest Awards

The work I did for Audi and the Best Buddies Challenge caught the eye of the judges at the International Design Awards.

I love really good coffee and bicycles.

Currently, I’m the Associate Creative Director at Britelite Immersive in San Francisco where I serve as the creative lead on large scale digital installations alongside a multi-disciplinary team of strategists, developers, managers, and fabricators. I’d love to talk to you about educational speaking engagements and the future of the creative industry.
