Jack of all trades,
Master of none
— is often times better 
 Than master of one.

Since graduating with a degree from a top-tier design college, I’ve been working across most mediums in my now twenty years of experience. Though, my focus has mainly been digital in most of its forms, with more recent emphasis on mobile.

I make business strategy, user-centricity and design principles the primary drivers for creation. I also enjoy working with those outside my discipline in cross-functional teamwork. I‘ve done everything from lead creative teams and workshops, to fine-tune pixels for production — and, essentially everything in between.

Skills

Competencies that I have, whether acquired working direct for a client or in-house at a studio. Each particular project page lists where I‘ve contributed in such capacities.
Direction — has varied meaning in design; creative direction, art director, consultant, etc. I interpret this as any situation I‘ve been in a position to manage people in some capacity, from team lead to overseeing implementation by developers.
Brand Strategy — Working directly with company heads to uniquely explain what they do to the world; sometimes including defining customer experience or even help find a name. After realizing brand personality comes identity design, marketing communications, product story, and more.
Design Thinking — Today this refers to a more standardized way designers have often always worked, but now inclusive of other disciplines like business leadership, marketing, or technology. Also, involving the customer through some form of user testing is optimal.
Digital Product Design — I see this as a wholistic fusion of user experience and visual interface design (including animation). Both are essential, and with the ability to do both conjointly you produce a superior product.
Print Motion Website Design — These are just decades-old graphic design principles (information hierarchy, typography, contrast, layout, grid systems, color, etc.) applied to different communication mediums; classic or modern.
