tl;dr: I’m a design-centric entrepreneur living in San Francisco.
I have this weird idea that I can and should make the world a better and more interesting place. I’m all about problem solving, and involve myself in solving problems in a lot of different ways, personally and professionally, primarily through better design.
I started my first business in high school designing logos and web banners. In college I worked for a dot-com startup during the summer, income from which I used to design and print a bunch of t-shirts that I sold online out of my dorm room the rest of the year. I built a web design studio out of college that increased 50% year over year until joining Mural to build out an internal creative team to tackle some much larger projects.
I have never limited myself to one thing, and have had many entrepreneurial exploits. I’ve built a web hosting business from scratch. I’ve invented a new kind of tree lopper that’s been licensed to Fiskars and is in stores now. I’ve even assembled a team to come up with new fried concoctions for a state fair (we came up with some amazing fried buffalo chicken & mozzarella balls, among other delights).
Most recently I’ve joined Selligy as Creative Director, and am spending my days wire-framing mobile experiences, translating iOS designs to objective-c, building responsive web pages, editing promotional videos, and in general doing whatever I can to make Selligy a success.
I’ve done design and consulting for some of the worlds largest technology companies, helping them improve their user experiences, and ultimately their bottom lines.
If you’re building something really interesting, I probably want to talk to you about it.
