I'm a entrepreneur/designer constantly unhappy with the world and so, a slave to bettering it through design and communication. Founder, CEO and House Elf of Katachi Media where we are creating new types of narratives, journalism and mass communication for the mobile and interactive touch experiences.

I am an accomplished graphic designer with 25 years experience. Born in the US and now living in Oslo, Norway. I have been working in Europe for the past twelve years with some of my past clients including Sony, Nike, Audi, Visa, Nissan, Nippon Express, RTL, TBWA, KCRW, Presen House Too, Toshiba, Lego, Vodafone and Kenwood.

The past 10 years of my design career have been an exploration into the broader idea of design from architecture in modular housing (Løvetann) to furniture and industrial design (Koobrick). Design is much more of a omni craft for me now, with the common thread being the ephemeral experience we're all striving to have.

I have lived and worked in Los Angeles, Tokyo, Hamburg and Oslo both as a manager and as a practicing designer. I'm a native English speaker and have good business Japanese competence.

Specialties: Graphic and interactive design, international branding, product development and digital strategy. Read Less
