About me

I am a graphic designer, strategist and divergent thinker and I love helping people. Discovering possibilities, creating something new and watching the successful outcomes come to pass. This is where I drive the most satisfaction.

What makes me unique among my peers is how I approach each client and their request. I do not start by looking for problems to solve. I look for possibilities and the paths to reality. There is a good bet a client doesn’t have a dilemma that merely needs fixed, but rather untapped opportunities ready to be unleashed.

I bring three very important components to the conversation. I am the creative, the consultant and the strategist. If anyone of these is missing, your project will be random and arbitrary.

As a creative I ask, “What are the possibilities?”

As a consultant I ask, “What should be done?”

As a strategist I ask, “What will it cause?”

"The role of a creative leader is not to have all the ideas; it's to create a culture where everyone can have ideas and feel that they're valued. So it's much more about creating climates."
