30 YEARS IN INNOVATION LANE, MERGING  ART + STORY + TECH

As a San Francisco Bay Area Art Director, Visual-Storyteller and Writer, I've had the privilege

to work with some of the most successful companies and leaders in digital arts & entertainment. 

As a multi-hyphenate, I thrive in the innovation spaces where I can bring my unique combination

of Visual-Storytelling skills and Cross-Platform & Cross-Industry perspective towards crafting

meaningful Audience, Player, and User experiences.
