I have done so many different things. I played the role of Scorsese on multiple commercial video shoots, I've put on my deep voice for radio ads, and I've tuned drums for some pretty pretentious musicians. It wasn’t until I put a focus on project planning that I realized everyone needs someone to guide a project from conception to completion.

A long time lover of sports, I love quarterbacking a team to creating something we can all be proud of. I’m inspired by good interactive design and IA and I enjoy forcing myself to understand code… mainly to prevent getting yelled at by our web developers.
