I moved here from NY where I had over 20yrs of experience in Graphic Design, Illustration, Branding, Sales, and both Digital and Offset printing. In all of that, I learned great management and interpersonal skills that have been the backbone of my drive towards being a better artist and collaborator. I am currently seeking 3d Modeling work and trying to find jobs that will allow me to create immersive environments, characters and worlds for people to enjoy.

    I'm a freelance associate creative director, art director and creative thinker working out of San Francisco. Over the last decade I've been fortunate enough to join some very good ad agencies with some very good people working on brands such as The North Face, NerdWallet, Hulu, Fitbit, Amazon, Cricket Wireless, Lyft, Honey Bunches of Oats and Muscle Milk. Before that, I grew up in Gilbert, Arizona where my friends and I would shovel mounds of shaved ice from a Zamboni at the local ice rink into a truck bed, drive it to a nearby hill to make our own snowboard run. This lead me to move to Colorado for a couple years to shred on the real deal. Next I moved to San Francisco where I landed my first job in advertising learning how to make brands famous. In my spare time, you can find me camping in my Volkswagen Westfalia somewhere off grid.

    I'm a San Francisco-based creative. I've helped craft visuals that sing in traditional and non-traditional media, authored TV spots and social videos, and have a knack for spotting cultural moments and trends well. But what truly makes me patently insane for more are ideas. I’ve spent an inordinate amount of time wondering what makes a good idea great, necessary, and, more importantly, Cannes Gold worthy. Whether you need someone to creatively direct your brand campaign, write social copy or scripts or need help designing an identity for your brand, I can help.
