I have spent the past 15 years running my own design firm managing a host of both enterprise and small clients, I have experience helping put smaller fish in a bigger pond, from creating Austin-based Snap Kitchen’s original branding and identity and how that informed their physical space, to evolving Dell’s global brand in an already crowded arena. My experience has been a collaborative one, working with and for agencies, while also representing my clientele in the disciplines of creative direction, UI/UX, photo art direction and design. I’ve translated requirements and ideas into tailored visual systems and directions. From web design, mobile applications, online ads and email campaigns—to trade show displays, style guides, product catalogs and editorial design (often integrated simultaneously across mediums)—I’ve touched every facet of brand ID, while also managing outside production, development and creative resources. In my career, I’ve lead campaigns from concept through execution, shaping visual narratives—all while balancing beauty, innovation and most importantly, usability. Great ideas are not isolated—I’ve found that tireless iterations in a collaborative environment, ultimately bring a digital experience to it’s maximum potential.
