With over 13 years of professional Creative, Brand and Marketing experience, I have made a career out of bringing simple, innovative solutions to complicated problems. Much of his impact comes from a sensitivity to how creativity and design merge to impact and drive business. I am currently bringing these insights to DDR, a Real Estate Investment Trust specializing in prime retail shopping centers. Serving as Senior Creative Director, my primary focus is injecting creativity into all aspects of the business and, in turn, creating value to retailers, investors, partners and employees.

In the winter of 2011, I co-founded a tech startup called Andtix. This iPhone App utilized mutliple social media platforms to streamline and simplify the way in which friends got into something.

Prior to co-founding Andtix and taking the entrepreneurial leap, I served as Creative Director at Findaway, inventors of Playaway®, the world’s first pre-loaded digital audiobook (www.playaway.com). Called a “genius idea” by Oprah Magazine and the “simplest way to get from the bookstore to Chapter One” by the New York Times, I helped to drive Findaway from a start-up idea to a profitable, Inc 500 success four years straight. In my six year tenure, I led a talented team of designers executing creative initiatives ranging from brand development and product and package design, to advertising campaigns and internal culture reinforcement.

While at Findaway I co-founded Thunk, a start-up dedicated to designing products that meet the increasing demands of the mobile consumer in the Summer of 2009. In just seven months, Thunk ideated, designed, manufactured and marketed Appstand™, our first consumer product. In a matter of one year, Appstand went from a simple sketch to a product featured in the New York Times, Engadget and Herman Miller with distribution across the globe.
