I see digital design as an art and a driver of customer delight. I'm the catalyst that mixes ideas, pushes concepts and finds the best way to energize brands through sophisticated visual design.
I don't believe in design without purpose. I see digital design as a science and believe that design plays a role in solving problems that improve the consumer experience.
I think like a business owner and identify opportunities to grow the business, the brand, whether indirectly or directly related to design.
I enjoy rolling up my sleeves and getting into the nitty gritty of design, yet my goal is ultimately to be a 'thought-leader' and provide more than ideas but inspiration.
I have high regards for team building, I work exceptionally well across all key functional areas including sales, web development, film production and customer service.
I'm always looking for opportunities and aren’t afraid to take risks for the sake of making things better.
