Hello! I'm an experienced Art Director with 24 years at top studios where I honed my skills as an enthusiastic strategic-thinker that excels at team management, collaborative creative brainstorming, and hands-on leadership.
Seattle, WA has been my home for the past 25 years. I spend my time with my wife and two kids (and three dogs, two guinea pigs, and a gecko, phew!) working on house projects and traveling. When I can, I enjoy tennis, bicycling, and running.
Vice President of User Acquisition at Big Fish Games
"He was a well liked and respected senior leader on my team and embodied all the attributes needed in a player/coach of a large creative organization."
Artist at The Topps Company
"Rather than just a supervisor, he has become an incredible mentor, through drawing, sculpting and has given me that special push to nurture my artistic talents to help me achieve my goals."
President / Tech Director at Leviathan Games, Inc
"During his tenure at Leviathan Games, he managed to coordinate mixed teams of junior artists and veterans alike, and kept our studio hitting milestones with unique, innovative content."
"He listens to input from non-technical people, and is able to capture their visions and create results in ways that exceed expectations"
As Marketing Art Director for Big Fish, I oversaw a team of Graphic Designers, Motion Graphics Designers, Illustrators, and Project Managers. I played a lead role in driving installs through iterating and following the data. We increased CTR and CVR for games like Gummy Drop and Cooking Craze and significantly lowered CPI. Below are samples of my team's work.
