About

My 25+ year career in design and advertising began at a little 3-person ad agency in St. Louis. There I began to learn to craft like an art director and think like a strategist. A million hours and a handful of job titles later, I found myself Creative Director at a couple of agencies here in Portland, where I currently raise my kids and work as an independent contractor (or freelancer). Working independently allows me the flexibility to work solo, in-house at agencies, or as team-leader of custom-built creative teams. Every client and project is a little different, so each deserves its own unique solution.
