I was born in Burbank, CA and currently reside in Studio City, CA. I am a professional problem solver in all aspects of my life and career. I am a Senior Art Director, creative, and former full-time musician. I also enjoy playing video games and hanging out with my cat, Cheeseburger.
When I discovered my love for playing music I also fell into the world of graphic and web design. My first band was too broke to afford to hire a designer, so I took it upon myself to learn everything I could from tutorials, books, and the internet. I was lucky enough to be able to tour the entire world multiple times, living the life as a rockstar, but that lifestyle is lacking in longevity. I began to think seriously about a career in design, so I took some time off from music and went to a few different colleges and tech schools in Southern California. Shortly after working as a creative, I discovered a love for advertising and thus made it my goal to work in a related field. For nearly the past decade I have been an integral part of a lot of great firms, agencies, and start-ups in the LA area that have helped me make my mark in the design and advertising world. Most recently, my time at Xbox (which combined my love of advertising, design, and gaming) saw the brand reach new levels (a 500% engagement increase, to be exact) and I was able to push the gaming giant in new directions that were very profitable and beneficial.
At the end of the day, however, it doesn't matter who the client it. What matters is the work I put into each and every project, whether it's 360 campaigns, pitch meetings, social, photography, or post-production.
Let me solve your problems and bring those ideas to life.
A few brands I've worked on:
Microsoft (Xbox, Surface, Windows, and Store), Oculus Rift, Activision (Call Of Duty, Destiny 2), PUBG Corp. (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds), Ubisoft (Watch Dogs), VH1 (America’s Next Top Model), Miley Cyrus, PepsiCo (Lipton Brisk), Sony Music, Starz, USA Network, Monster Energy, WhoYouAre / B.
