A professional designer and painter for well over a decade, I've built my career leading creative teams of art directors and production talent for prestigious brands. I was head of the design team at Arthur Andersen for seven years, and worked as a CG Artist at a creative firm in Hollywood catering to major film studios (ColumbiaTristar, Paramount, and Disney) and top-ten ad agencies in L.A. (Bozell, McCann, Grey, FCB, Creative Artists Agency).
I wrapped up a senior creative tenure at Amgen in Thousand Oaks after nearly eight years, and quickly founded Slingshot Studios, Inc. in Westlake Village, specializing in "launching" brand identities such as Protein Pathways and Coastview Capital, headed by former Amgen CEO and SVPs. I have a degree in design and studied at American Film Institute, immediately winning first place and Best of Festival nomination at the International Film Festival in Chicago for my first reel as a director.
I'm a successful drummer, have worked as a Personal Fitness Trainer, and I'm a winning competitive surfer—taking two consecutive Ventura County Invitationals, as well as recently surfing in the WSA Gatorade Championship Series.
