Navy is the new black

me

I'm a Silicon Valley native now living in San Francisco. I sure do miss the crickets on summer nights.

Starting out in multimedia when it was called that, my varied skills and interests led me quite naturally into brand experience and the visual and verbal systems behind it. In recent years, I've led strategic brand identity and website initiatives for a broad range of clients.
