My design career has spanned three decades, from building 800×600 pre-“dotcom” era websites to building brands and apps in the multi-platform universe we live in today. I am passionate about user experience in all forms, and believe that concept and intention drive the best designs. Many can make something look pretty. Fewer can make things that mean something.
I believe in being as hands-on as possible. Teams are work families. We spend more time with our fellow designers, developers, and producers than we do with our own children during the week. It’s essential to surround yourself with great people who are also talented. Humanity over talent every day of the week.
DEFY MEDIA VP, CREATIVE SERVICES
From 2010-2018 I led the Creative Services department at DEFY, built an award-winning family of (incredible) designers and producers, and created an obscene amount of design.
I started as a team of one, and over nearly eight years grew to fifteen strong. In the course of the last 4 years alone, we were responsible for 50+ show identities, multiple brand redesigns (for channels with millions of subscribers and billions of video views), 50+ motion packages, countless photoshoots, and 25+ sizzle reels; add to that, an unbelievable amount of presentations, decks, and daily thumbnails. We built a well-oiled machine that churned out stellar work, day in and day out.
