I manage teams of people much smarter and creative than I am
I’ve managed a number of design & development teams during the course of my career. The key to my success is surrounding myself with fantastic people who do great work. Also who like to have a bit of fun. When my teams and I weren’t having Hot Ones inspired lunches, or playing laser tag, we used that extra time to design a number of high-quality consumer products that helped over 14 million people.

DEVELOPING PRODUCTS FOR USERS
I execute ideas that spring to mind
I live in a constant state of “Let me create something, damn it!” which would be exhausting if it weren’t so motivating. I have a fervent need to build, design, draw, make, or create. It’s worked out very well so far. This drive leads me to start my own Dribbble-style short posts called “Quickies“. It’s a land of ideas that have the potential to be more. I also take a swing at redesigning brands and logos I think have potential. Have a gem of an idea you need to be tackled? Let’s Work Together!
