As a rare breed defining innovation in engaging product experience design, I strive to build the future. With an expertise in visual and motion design, coupled with a foundation in development, I deliver from start to finish, from idea to execution. Comfortable working in all areas of design, I gladly wear many hats—more chance to solve creative problems. My mantra: to build, to create, to inspire, compelling product experiences that defy the expectation.
