Getting an award for a zombie game from Chris Hardwick? Perfect.

Whether with a full team or just flying solo, I’ll use my Wonka-like imagination, MacGyver-like skills, and Sherlock-like insights to develop amazing creative solutions for global brands that crush business goals (and we’ll have fun doing it). Not bragging. Okay, I am a little, but this is about me.

// Spare time // 
I do a lot of work on the house - we took our 1965 mid-century modern house down to the studs. Rewired, replumbed, moved walls ... it's a big project. I also fumble a bit with the guitar, read a lot to my son Penn, do a bit of cooking and mixology, sketch, paint, play with our dog Homer, go see live music, and try to get outside with my family as much as possible.
