Ever since I was little, I’ve always loved design. It’s simply magical, the way it can touch, shape and transform lives.
I'm a Experience (UX) and Creative Director and agency executive with over 15 years of experience (including 10 in management) focused on creating deeply useful, usable, and engaging user experiences for leading companies. I see UX as a driving force for product and process innovation through user research, information architecture, content strategy, and interaction design.
As Experience Director at BFG Communications, I've helped to recruit and build an amazing team of leading UX researchers, strategists, designers, and engineers that showcase the brand and business value UX can bring to full-service agencies. Among the brands and companies that I've worked on during my career: Anheuser-Busch InBev, Campari, Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, LG, RJ Reynolds, Snyder’s-Lance, Treasury Wine Estates, and Whirlpool.

When I'm not designing (that's not often I can assure you) I spend my time restoring vintage 80's BMX bikes back to new condition. Aside from that, I am passionate in all things visual; movies, art, reading, and photography.
