Design Director/Digital Artist
I have an accomplished history in graphic design and broadcast production as a digital artist, motion graphics designer and as a design, animation and effects director. I've been a partner and or sole owner of several successful San Francisco post production companies which generated upwards of 35 million in combined revenue. My work has contributed to the sale of countless products and services and heightened the awareness of hundreds of brands. Received numerous awards including an Emmy and a Clio and generated millions in revenue for past employers, clients, their clients as well as for my own companies. It's always exceeded client expectations and delivered the results crucial to the successful operation and growth of business.
I have a genuine passion for design, the creative process and the creation of inspired ground breaking new work. I'm able to see the big picture but know success lives in the small details. From my experience I believe I've developed a proactive, solution-based forward thinking approach to successful design creation, project and client management and creative business development.
