I love blending creative innovation and pragmatic thinking in everything I do. More importantly, I cultivate excitement about the future. Whether consulting with organizations, building & leading teams, or directing innovation, it's important this hard work is fun and inspiring for all involved. I'm a master at translating the complex needs of brilliant organizations, inventors and filmmakers to leading designers, technologists and artists.  


Previously a long-time Principal/Chief Creative at Perception, I’ve mastered several disciplines, many of which stem from motion design and user experience. A passion for creative execution quickly became 10+ years of leadership, direction and strategy. This wide range of past experiences has helped to define my specific expertise



I’m an accomplished public speaker, presenting and keynoting conferences worldwide. Audiences love the way I demystify beloved films and popular products. My experience in front of large audiences translates well to more intimate settings. I lead engaging workshops, and am a master at delivering the winning pitch.


From Executive Creative Director to Lead Artist I've done it all, but that's not why my clients come back.

Today, I consult with clients by bringing highly concentrated value to specific hurdles in the process. Rather then deliver advice, I work directly with teams and clients as a model for leaders in the organization/agency. This approach inspires, while breaking habits and forging new competencies. 

Example Engagements:

• Vision for white-spaces in Film, Technology and Automotive: Nurturing and creating amazing ideas with the support of pragmatic data & research, generating momentum in an organization.

• Overhauling team dynamics from 'service provider' to 'trusted expert', by working hard with both client and team.

Guiding the relationship within teams composed of experts in UX and 3D/VFX to create the next generation of digital products.
