Creative Leader in the areas of Digital Experience, Branding, Moving Image, Social Media Marketing, Content creation and Spatial Design.



Over the past 19 years, I’ve had incredible opportunities to create some highly visible projects for brands like Sonos, Apple, Beats by Dre, Nike Jordan Brand, Nike Running, Gatorade, Nissan and Google to name a few. I have consulted with many visionary entrepreneurs to bring their ideas to life in areas of Hospitality, Real Estate and Consumer Technology.

I have been gathering insights and skills along the way, aimed at evolving how people can interact with brands and develop genuine relationships.

Creating new experiences fascinates me and pushes me to be constantly thinking about what’s next. I love to keep myself open to what’s possible, and I bring that perspective to the teams I lead.
