For a long time I’ve believed in experiences over things. Creating experiences is why I enjoy design so much. It gives me an opportunity to build a world around people. As a creative director, I understand how important the complete visual experience is to a brand. I’ve focused on UI/UX, branding and print design, but the core of what I do is design thinking: creating solutions to problems. I am at my best when presenting concepts, talking through my UX and design approach, and helping to gain alignment while also pushing the status quo.
