The best part of my life is sharing my interests with family and friends.

If I can do that over a great meal, conversation, and a cold home-brewed beer, then all the better. Along with my fraternal twin brother, Banjo Mike, and are not much older sister, Melissa, I grew up in the Chicago suburb of Oswego, lived in Kobe, Japan during high school, and attended business school in Rock Island, Illinois.

I have now been in San Francisco for 14 years where I live with my lovely wife, Maria. My interests and daily pursuits are vast, but they are always enhanced by good conversation, some inspiration, and a positive eye on the future.

"I’m inspired by everything I do. Design is a form of discovery that starts again every day and that’s why I love it.”

Currently available for part-time and consulting work.

After two and a half years at Cog1 as Senior Producer, Creative Director, and Co-Director of Digital Marketing, I have made the jump to begin pursuing new full-time and freelance opportunities. I am meeting with teams, companies, and networking at events in San Francisco.

I currently work part-time at Acuity Agriculture where I focus on product, design, operations, and marketing. We are an AgTech startup founded in 2014. We provide farms with wireless sensors to collect field condition data that is viewed on a dashboard accessed by your device. I have worked with Acuity for more than 3 years.
