About Me

I'm a Creative Director and creative consultant for projects in advertising, entertainment, design, and technology. Throughout my career I've worked as an advertising creative, designer and creative technologist focusing on integrated advertising campaigns, digital production, product design, and extreme dog/cat herding. In addition to my work as a creative, I teach courses in Digital Product Design, Art Direction, and Interaction Design at Parsons. When I have spare time I like to ride motorcycles and take photographs.
