I am intimate and speedy with my swiss army knives: Figma, XD, Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. I organize my life with OmniFocus, Evernote, and several markdown-formatted notes.

I adore typography and writing analytically. I roam the city with my motorcycle and hoon cars on weekends. Sundays are reserved for cups of peppermint tea and clearing out my Instapaper queue

I believe wisdom and mentorship are critical to my future success.

And I’m still trying to be better. We all try.

I’ve worn many hats: 

  • Senior Interactive Art Director in DC at an ad agency
  • Senior Art Director in NY at a pharma ad agency
  • Co-founder of a non-profit to teach basketball to kids
  • Waiter, bus boy, and manager at three different steakhouses
  • Senior Designer at a startup creative firm
  • Tech Director at a startup media company
  • Print Shop Manager of a mom-n-pop shop

I’ve also received recognition:
