About Me

Over 15 years of experience helping brands – big and small – find and capture new opportunities.

I help small brands build their foundation and reach through expansive campaigns.

I guide established brands to identify ways to step out of their comfort zone and discover new growth.

For all clients, I start by listening to their goals and pain points and work with the end in mind. I set ambitious, compelling visions, possess the technical capabilities to build realistic plans, and coach talented teams to bring it to life. I’ve worked with clients and agencies in this capacity.

The biggest honor of my career continues to be coaching and developing multi-disciplinary teams of designers, filmmakers, copywriters, art directors, developers, strategists, and marketers to deliver challenging yet exciting, high impact projects.

My experience as a musician, filmmaker, developer, and designer have shaped how I approach creative direction, with empathy for the technical requirements and enthusiasm for the process of pushing creative boundaries together.
