My Objective

A prolific generalist at heart. I've had experience in just about every field in the design world. My focus is not only a single asset, but several disciplines coming together to produce a strong experience.

My strength as an artist is speed and understanding good process. I heavily promote positive, excellent communication to get the best results for the product and for a team.
