About Me:

I have been designing something one way or another for as long as I can remember. I started off drawing comic book characters and The Simpsons, then graduated to drawing portraits of my favorite athletes and musicians. I used to make my own Halloween costumes, then horror movies with my friends. I’ve made documentaries, written screenplays. I have built some of furniture I use in my house. I love the process of starting from an idea and making it into something tangible.

I have been fortunate in my career to work on countless projects that run the spectrum of design, but more fortunate to meet amazing and talented people along the way. Some of them are now lifelong friends. 


I enjoy meeting and learning about other people. Truly. I could listen to you tell me your life story and be totally fascinated. I love reading non-fiction and biographies for this reason. People and their experiences simply fascinate me.

I work hard. My parents work hard. Same with my siblings. We were raised that way.

I like taking the lead. There is nothing worse than indecision. Pick a path and follow it. If you fuck up, take responsibility, no excuses, and move on.

I love collaborating. I am at my happiest when I am working with someone or a group, making something together. Brainstorming, concepting, trying out ideas, failing and succeeding. Life, to me, is not about what you have, its about your experiences. Creating, making, and building things makes me happy.

I’m comfortable with myself. I don’t care about what other people do, I have always stayed true to myself and what I believe. The environment I grew up in supported that. My best friends and I had different tastes in literally every possibly way, but we had one strong common trait, we all loved to laugh and make each other laugh. Humor unites.

I love being a husband and a father. My family is literally everything to me. Seriously, ask me about my family and i’ll talk for days. Bring it.
