I’m a creative director / designer focusing on story-driven, user-focused experiences that bridge people and product.


I design across mediums and always for the user. My work ranges from branding and design systems; the creation of experiences and content for large-scale interactive installations; motion and live action content; social media; print; branding; type design. I direct multidisciplinary teams in the creation, pitching, and taking of concepts through to production. I've worked on teams both on the studio/agency side and on the brand side. 

Projects that bring design and people together is where my passion lies. Most of all, I love working with others who share a curiosity about people and the world, to provide them opportunities to playfully experience something they've never felt before.

There's so much more to talk about.
