building digital worlds.

I've been leading the design team at Emotive Brand as Interim Creative Director for the past year - stepping above my designated role.

I've been working to implement a cohesive methodology rooted in emergence. I mentor motion designers, brand designers, and interaction designers.

My style of leading is casual, quick, and always produces top work that is fully thought-through, strategically sound, and has the ability to last decades.


I lead teams by working along side them. We make the road by walking together. I never want to step away from the craft of actually making things. This is how I inspire the designers around me and how I stay connected to the work itself. I believe work should be fun, so I keep it that way.

15 years experience

I've worked with agencies like AKQA, Huge, Hub Strategy, MetaDesign.

I currently lead the digital department that I have built from the ground up at EmotiveBrand.

Over the last 15 years I've worked directly with IBM, Nike, New York Philharmonic, AIGA, ABB, Blue Shield, Hub Strategy, The Oakland A’s, Linkedin, Zinch, Good Technology, Autodesk, Lunar, Joyable, Livefyre, Twitter, Raizlabs, PlusPlus, Oakland Unified School District, Hewlett Packard, Texture, Berlin&Beyond, Olympus, Adult Swim, Undrip, Urban Strategy, & Six Flags.
