My goal is to to use design and brand management experience in a creative and challenging atmosphere. In my previous role as Group Creative Director for High Speed Productions—publisher of Thrasher and Juxtapoz magazines, I helped manage the brand direction, visual design and nuts-and-bolts production of the businesses both before and after the death of the founder in 2006. Apparel sales, websites, magazines, collaborations, and events all grew in revenue and reach under my guidance. I relocated earlier this year to Southern California to be closer to my family as well as help a friend revamp his media company and launch a new business. As these current projects wrap up I am excited to start looking for new opportunities for personal and professional growth. I have over two decades of experience in art direction, design, and brand management, and I strive to be an ego-free "leader by example" with a reputation for hard work and getting things done. I can wear many hats and operate at all levels of an organization to ensure design standards, quality, and brand consistency throughout a range of diverse products. I have a broad set of skills and a passion for producing high-quality work with talented teams, and I hope you'll consider me for any challenging opportunities you may have.
