web + brand + design


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."

"The customer rarely buys what the company thinks it sells them. One reason for this is, of course, that nobody pays for a ‘product.’ What is paid for is satisfaction."
