RELATIONSHIPS, GOOD PEOPLE & MAGIC
Each time a client presents me with a problem or objective, I see the beginning of a mini-adventure. As your creative partner, I believe my job is to get beyond expected solutions. I believe in sound strategy plus the element of surprise. Even with today's over-abundance of data, I still believe we are talking to human beings who want to feel something, learn something or grow in some way. My intention is to use my craft to help you connect the dots between your brand and these fine people. This often requires getting your thinking off the grid, where something magical can happen.
I've held positions as Creative Director, Art Director and Designer at Portland, Bend and St. Louis firms. I currently freelance for agencies and work with my own clients. I've helped brands like Nike, Adidas, Coca-Cola, Subway, Providence, Dr. Martens, Daimler, Trimet, Habitat for Humanity, Montana Lottery and Idaho Power. My craft is art direction, design and writing. My passion is watching ideas come to life.
I often work with trusted creative collaborators, extending my services to meet specific project needs. I'm currently headquartered in Portland, Oregon. You can work with me individually, or with a team built specifically around your opportunity. Either way, expect to work with creative, account, strategy and digital pros deep in experience and practiced in craft.
