Creative Leadership


Collaboration is key. I work with teams of designers, writers, strategists, producers, and project managers to bring design projects to life.  From initial client intake through production and installation, I drive creative forward with an eye towards creating memorable, interactive, and forward-thinking experiences. 






Visualization and Production


Creative aside, I love the technical side of design. As a creative lead I often advise on fabrication and documentation. I have extensive experience with 3D rendering, pricing sets, construction documentation, and fabrication planning. My process always maintains a balance between creative exploration and production requirements. 









Background


Environmental design has been my focus during my 15+ years of working in design.  I started my career doing exhibit design, then moved into environmental and interior design, launched an interior architecture company, and have lately worked as a creative director and department lead in events and retail. 

Along the way I’ve also worked in video and motion graphics, social and influencer campaigns, branding and identity systems, a variety of graphic design projects, interior design, and some theater set design thrown in the mix. 










Side projects


I stay pretty damn busy outside of work. I’m a maker at heart and love creating. some recent projects have included creating environments based on sci fi novels I’ve read, designing and building out a camper van, making clay characters, home renovation work, painting and drawing here and there, and making strange music on my drum machine. Stayin busy.
