"Go to where the puck is going, not to where it is." -Wayne Gretzky

I have had the opportunity to work with some tremendous teams and stellar partners along the way. Clients have included, Toyota, Incase, Honda Motor Sports, Calloway, Red bull, Direct TV, Gateway, American Racing Wheels and Taylormade Golf. As the Senior Art Director of Advertising at Starbucks Coffee Company in Seattle, I helped develop the fully integrated launch of a new line of afternoon drinks called Sorbetto and the launch of their everyday brew, Pike’s Place Roast. Both have been an enduring success. From concept to design, copywriting and implementation, I am passionate about telling fully integrated stories that drive traffic across multiple platforms. Recent years have included iPhone applications for clients like trails.com and Old Town Canoes. At my current company Doodlehaus, a product development and branding boutique, I led the development of a patent pending iPad case that was licensed to Incase in San Francisco in 2011. Most recently I have written a series of interactive children's books and a humor/self-help book. We are at work on a line extension of toys as well.

I take pride in collaborating and/or guiding teams to achieve above and beyond for themselves and our clients. With ideation at the core of everything I do, I feel equally as adept with copywriting as I do with art direction. Other hobbies and interests continue to be photography, music and an occasional house remodel. In 2005 I completed a complete renovation of a 1960 Donald Wexler designed modern home in Palm Springs.

My most recent favorite read is The Yiddish Policeman’s Union by Michael Chabon. And let me add Captain Crunchberries, Peet's Coffee, Fairly Brothers movies, and family to the mix of passions and interests.

Awards include Clios, Graphis Advertising Annual, American Graphic Design and How. I have a degree in Psychology from the University of California Berkeley. References available upon request. Read Less
