I am an Executive Creative Director / Designer / UX Designer with over eighteen years of in-house and agency experience developing visual design, user interaction, art direction and brand strategy for a wide variety of globally recognized brands. From infancy through redesigns, the products and brands I build and manage become a part of peopleā€™s lives. I believe that storytelling, at its most brilliant, can catapult a company from a logo to a lifestyle. 

I like clean, smart products that are easy to use and even easier to fall in love with. My holistic design approach relies on mentoring and inspiring diverse creative teams to deliver outstanding work above and beyond expectations. My commitment to consistently high production value combined with strategic frameworks has helped many companies graduate from ideas to mature, household brands. With a focus first on solving the business needs, I set my teams up to scale and thrive far beyond early stage branding and iteration. 

I measure my success against the brands and teams I build. I pride myself on my ability to grow teams of product designers, visual designers, and copywriters that create beautiful, desirable products and brands ā€” but also vibrant and dynamic creative cultures within organizations. 

I approach every project with enthusiasm, innovation, a desire to learn, and a penchant for fun. If you like logos and resumes, check out my work history for more detail.
