Art Director / Designer / Creative Life Coach? Yes.
I have been creating and collaborating in the wide worlds of design, marketing and advertising for 20 years. Every day is new and I am still excited by the work. It’s my reputation that keeps me busy. I use this site as more of a show and tell than a sales tool. That said, if you see something here that inspires you to work with me, that's great.
If you need someone to solve creative problems, collaborate, pick color schemes, curate photos or simply design cool shit, please contact me.

RESOURCES / REFERRALS
I love connecting with talented people and singing their praises. I bring together top stylists, printers, photographers, media planners, programmers, illustrators, copywriters, craftspeople and artists that complement my own design skills to offer my clients a unique resource for their branding and design needs. (Okay, that was a little sales-y.)
DEISGN MANTRAS FOR TODAY:
1. Less is more.
2. Empower those around you.
3. If it's not fun or meaningful don't do it.
4. There is no right or wrong in design—it's subjective (unless you're using Comic Sans, then it's wrong).
5. Share your knowledge, there's room for everyone to shine.
6. Smile. Creating a brand should be fun.
7. Black is the new black.
8. Have a dog in your office (or a cat, or a bird, or a pocket pig).
10. Don't work for assholes. But if you must work for assholes, lead by example and don't be one.
