I can’t help it. I love what I do. I see life through the eyes of an artist, pragmatist and visual problem solver. I love helping people see the possibilities in what they have or in what they do, and showing them in their best light – a way that they couldn’t see themselves. It’s fulfilling. Being the tide that lifts those around me.
I’m inspired by positive energy, reinvention, direct communication, enlisting common vision, bold color,
fine art, photography, great design, vintage finds, dogs and my family.
Committed to design excellence and effective design management, I enjoy solving creative organizational problems from tweaking the details in a corporate logo, selecting the perfect color palette, optimizing teams and processes, holding financial accountability, rearranging an interior space to organizing what ever needs to be done. I love it all.
I also love creating experiences out of almost nothing – especially for big vision programs, regardless of budget.
For me, that’s when true creative leadership shines and I’m alive.
I value creativity and business equally and deliver solutions that balance the two.
Its not just about metrics and systems, but taking teams to the next level, which lead to conditions that are beneficial to all.
People who want to do great work and who appreciate the power of ideas to drive business outcomes.
Creative cultures are special things. You know this. When they’re really humming, leadership, vision and empowerment inspire ideas.
So when they are performing well, the entire organization will benefit from it.
I know the power of them separately and importantly, together. I know the difference between building leaders and building followers.
I have the chops to dive down in my own craft, if necessary, but my talent lies in guiding aspiring art directors, storytellers and creative technologists to surface ideas that drive a business outcome.
