As a designer, I get pumped about digital design, branding, illustration, XM programs and working on brands that understand the value of design. I strive to exceed expectations by offering two options when one is requested, and offering design when decoration is expected. I believe order is necessary in design, but chaos is needed for brand evolution; the trick is in seizing the ideal moment to break out of the mold and breaking out by the right amount. As a team leader, I listen, value people, and hire for attitude because skills can be learned. I know we never stop learning and aim to stay humble. As an employee, I’ve worked at enough places to know that a foosball table doth not a company culture make. I know work perks and job titles are meaningless if you don't love what you do and who you do it with. As a human person, I love my kid, family road trips, backcountry camping, and all ice-cream except mint chocolate.
