Yes, I agree—sounds vague, maybe even grandiose.
I say this because I can back it up.
I'm the connective tissue
between two worlds...
Future world-building and creative consulting that expands imaginations in science-fiction, and extends to streaming + AAA gaming.
Vision, guidance, and leadership focused on the future of real-world digital products from the biggest names in tech.
My strength is in the overlap between these two worlds. I inspire teams & organizations by balancing a cinematic mindset with human-centered design.
For 15 years, working in film has been a blue-sky R&D space to explore the most imaginative ideas possible.
I've been fortunate to work closely with several of the greatest minds in entertainment. These experiences have made an enormous impact on my approach to creativity and collaboration.
My primary focus in film is designing fictional technologies that are inspiring yet logical, carefully crafted to invite a deeper curiosity from the audience. I am proud to be at the forefront of this particularly niche specialty.
DESIGN + FILM
Design is a powerful tool in film— whether through a dramatic title sequence, clever transitions or a carefully crafted conspiracy montage. I love revealing the unexpected ways that design can solve various challenges in the filmmaking process.

Innovation for major brands, with an emphasis on emerging spaces that don't yet have 'best practices'.
Technology evolves quickly— 3D experiences, Augmented Reality, Artificial Intelligence and beyond. I help teams at the center of major organizations navigate new challenges and create cinematic results.
Anticipating and defining future challenges and opportunities, and guiding organizations through undiscovered spaces.
Creating the north stars that strike the balance between practicality, impact, and feasibility. Ideas and concepts that solve problems, stir emotions, and generate momentum.
That whole concept of function and form? This is human-centered design intertwined with cinematic engagement. You need both to inspire movement in an organization.
Between electrification and autonomous, there has never been a more exciting time for the future of mobility.
PROFICIENCY THROUGH PASSION
Automotive culture is a personal passion of mine— I'm the son of a racing instructor and a true car-geek. Hell, I even host a Formula 1 Podcast with my best friend.
I've helped the biggest automakers in the world create strategies and roadmaps for how emerging technologies can enhance the mobility experience.
Making cars is hard— regulations, and long development cycles can inhibit innovation. I bring clarity and inspiration that propels ideas through complicated organizations.
The digital experience is now the primary point of communication between vehicle and driver. I enhance functionality while embellishing the emotional aspects of the vehicle.
