About Me


Who I am
I'm an art director, animator, developer, and design ninja whose playground is the intersection of art and technology. With over 20 years of experience in the design field, I've worked on everything from hand-painted wallpapering and custom carpentry for corporate spaces, to branding and launching television networks and developing full-stack web applications.

What I believe
I believe in honesty above all things. Embracing the philosophy that our actions define who we are, I strive to lead through example. I believe in hard work, celebrating success, constant innovation, collaboration, lifelong learning, and mentoring others.

What I do
I lead creative departments, projects, and people. I scrutinize everything for both form and function to design, animate, and code work that is beautifully simple and can cut through the noise. In my spare time, I enjoy taking classes, studying physics, pottery, sailing, caving, lock picking, teaching scuba, volunteering, and traveling with my wife. All in all, I do what I love.
