Co Founder & Director
Sep 2011 - Present (10 years 1 month)
I've set off to design a creative house of some sort, be it a production company or a wild creative house. Who knows, but well be offering creative services and problem solving issues for your low budget high-end boutique or local NYC business that want to take on the big dogs.
No idea to small or to big, Just ask and ye shall receive.
Will keep the interweb updated as we move along.
