I am an art director and graphic designer, but more importantly, I'm a foster dad, a husband, a cat lover, an entrepreneur, a huge fan of Katy Perry, an artist, and a skateboarder. In all seriousness, though, I can't think of any specific title that paints a clear picture of what I'm most passionate about, my strengths and the way I can contribute and help companies grow and succeed. I love being able to dig deep into a brand's identity and find the best way to communicate that message outwardly. I believe strongly in collaboration and am not afraid to ask questions, work and rework ideas, and voice my opinion on the direction of projects. Along those same lines, I have been a team leader but prefer to look at as being a team player. As a leader, I take the time to get to know the people I work with and their individual strengths and passions and do my best to help us succeed together. These days I like to research, write and strong-arm my way into meetings (if I have to) to help contribute to the best solution on each and every project that myself or my team touches. And lastly, I like to make sure those solutions look real nice too.
