This is Me

I want to make awesome experiences that people love and want through a combination of design, strategy, and technology. I’m a hybrid creative who specializes in experience design, but plays in product innovation, strategy, film, and art as well. I can look at new and developing technologies and see how they can be used creatively.

But here’s a little more about myself:

Ok, first off, no- I’m not a serial killer who fancies stylish eyewear. And I don’t cook meth even though I like to wear pink respirators.

I just like making stuff and you gotta put safety first, or you might poke your eyeball out. An I like my eyeballs.

I grew up with 7 brothers and sisters in upstate Corning, NY. A place famous for making home cookware. (I mean, how do you not brag about that.)

We took our 10-seat 1984 GMC van when I went on family vacations growing up. My parents must’ve been crazy very loving to think it was a good idea to strap in 8-kids and drive for 6-weeks across the US.

I was a teacher in Bangkok, Thailand for a year. It’s true, someone actually let me teach other human beings.

Before that, I studied in New Zealand during my junior year of college.

And after some time living in my parents’ basement and writing new music (a must for anyone), I ended up studying Creative Technology at the VCU Brandcenter in Richmond, VA.

I also blog, play video games, collect old cameras, putz with arduino, and try to build things that move, light-up, and/or make noises (The Retrofitted Workshop). I currently live in Venice, CA and work at 72andSunny.
