A well of Passion and Curiosity to solve the biggest challenges

20 years on larger than life, award-winning, global projects taught me the best brand experiences intersect with creativity, technology and storytelling. I’m driven to lead and innovate because there are complex challenges clients need solved. I see programming and scripting are just as artistic as pushing pixels to screens. I have an honest passion for crafting surprise and delight as well as to setup teams for success.

Art, Design, Animation, Code, Problem Solving, Storytelling, Mentorship: I love it all.
