User Bio

An art director by trade, I am a web designer and a graphic designer who loves fresh fonts, fast bikes and airplanes to anywhere.

Sharpened by 7 years on the mean streets of B2B advertising, I especially enjoy the prickly, “but our audience is so literal” and “but it’s never been done before" problems. If you have a quality product or service—I develop the language, look and medium to tell your story in a way that connects with your audience on an emotional level.

Currently, I’m a Senior Art Director at Slack and Company, which was recently named runner up for AdAge’s 2014 B2B Agency of the year. During my years at Slack I’ve enjoyed many an opportunity from helping launch Google Analytics Premium, to helping lay the foundation of GE’s new P&L Downstream Technology Solutions, to just recently having helped plan, design and build my agency's own new website. Check it out at slackandcompany.com.

Specialties: Planning and designing clean and immersive web experiences; directing teams of designers, writers, developers and project managers through the finish-line; pitching strategy and creative; putting on the headphones and designing for 18.5 hrs straight; helping clients tell an honest and customer-winning story; stretching brand guidelines to their best; photography; illustration; typography; branding; motion design; wireframing; protoyping; user-testing; budgeting and scheduling; keeping a room light and remembering to smile—even when a deadline is tight.
