I’m an executive creative director who has worked with Fortune 500 brands, governments, technology leaders and Olympic athletes to create brand identity systems, iconic marketing communications, consumer experiences and brand-defining products. I am an expert in the creation of product UI/X, brand identity and positioning, brand architecture, branded environments, photography concepts and packaging systems. I am experienced in building global creative teams as well as agency rosters.
Previously, I was the Executive Creative Director for the Google Brand Studio, where I led the design of experiences such as the Google Store, an online store that unites all of Google’s hardware into one beautiful and unified brand experience. Before relocating to the Bay Area, I was a Senior Global Creative Director at Nike where I drove the creation of brand campaigns for Nike+, Nike Running and the 2012 Olympic Trials. I also worked with First Lady Michelle Obama on her healthy schools initiative. Prior to Nike, I worked at Landor Associates, SY Partners, Chronicle Books, Pentagram and CKS Partners. I have created typefaces, identity systems, packaging, products and event experiences for Apple, FedEx, Herman Miller, P&G, the AIGA, Pixar and Dwell magazine.
My work has been featured in Adweek, the AIGA annual, the Annual of the Type Director’s Club, Atlantic Cities, the Annual of the AIA, fastcodesign.com and at Cannes, amongst others.
In my spare time I'm an avid runner, cyclist and the father of two wonderful and precocious children.
