Jack of all trades. Why settle for one?


Collaborating or working solo, I aim to produce user experiences that are clear, emotive, on-brand, and gratifying. I'm primarily a visual designer/art director with budding interaction design skills. A pro-am photographer, I'm skilled at 'curating and art directing' the environment or people to deliver compelling imagery.

Trained as an architect (UC Berkeley). Embraced multi-media early on for the varied nature of the projects. Versatility remains a dominant trait in my 'design personality'. Recently worked as 'art dept. of one' at major non-profit - DonorsChoose.org. Comfortable lending design direction for range of campaigns - multi-million dollar grant allocation, disaster relief, targeted resources. UX, print, animation, video, environmental design. A published writer, I enjoy generating narrative copy that enhances the visional experience. I have sold art for green money and have exhibited in small galleries and on refrigerators. And for a few glorious months, I worked as a pvt. detective.
