About Me

Hi. I'm a Creative Director with a background as a Creative Technologist and Art Director/Designer. Throughout my career I've worked in integrated advertising, digital production, product design, and extreme cat herding. In addition to my work as a creative, I serve as an Adjunct Faculty member at Parsons teaching courses in Interaction Design and Digital Product Design. When I have spare time I like to ride motorcycles and take photographs.
