I’m an Interactive Creative Director with 15+ years of experience. Most recently, I’ve focused on creating design systems for digital products, using my skills in both UX and visual design. As a Co-Founder of Sein Analytics, I helped build the company’s financial analytics beta product. As a design consultant, I’ve worked with UX, design and development teams, using an agile process.
My most recent client work has been in the financial, technology, beauty, entertainment and healthcare industries. My skills range from art and creative direction, user experience, digital product design, interaction and visual design and branding.
Over the years I've worked with many agencies including Publicis, McCann, TandemSeven, Organic, Havas, The Barbarian Group, Fluid, Droga5, Rapp, 360i, JWT, Digitas, Scholz & Friends Berlin, TribalDDB, Kirshenbaum Bond + Partners, Razorfish, FCB, RDA, Attik, Arc Worldwide, Frog and Fork in Hamburg. I hold a Masters from NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program and a BFA from Carnegie Mellon's School of Design, ranked #1 in Multimedia & Visual Communications in the US.
I've lived and worked in US cities including New York, San Francisco and Boston along with international moves, working for several years in Hamburg and Berlin, Germany and studying in Switzerland (I even speak German). I can never forget my humble roots, having been raised in Nebraska and West Virginia and credit this for my "down to earth" attitude toward projects.
I've developed projects for clients including Sony Music, Goldman Sachs, Fidelity, Samsung, American Express, GlaxoSmithKline, Volvo, JetBlue, Godiva, BMW, Diageo, A&E, Unilever, Nivea, Conde' Nast, McKinsey & Company, MTV and the BBC.
In my free time, I pursue my love for music, playing the violin since I was 4, singing and listening to music from classical to electronic. I ran my first half marathon 2 years ago and whenever possible I travel and have been to 44 of the US states, and 35 countries.
