A well of Passion and Curiosity to solve the biggest challenges

20+ years on larger than life, award-winning, global projects has taught me the best brand experiences come from the intersection of 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 setting up teams for success.

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