American by birth. Southern by the grace of god.

I'm originally from North Carolina and grew up in the country picking tobacco. As a young man I learned real fast what hard work meant. I served my country in the Navy during Desert Storm and ended up in San Diego. I got into design studying at San Diego City College and immediately landed a job in the industry. Although my focus is on digital, my passion is brands.




As the VP, Executive Creative Director at Mirum San Diego a WPP Company. I've been overseeing the creative department while growing their creative and brand services since '04. My work has been recognised by Cannes, Communication Arts, W3 Awards, Webby Awards and the OMMA Awards to name a few.

I've been leading the digital design program at San Diego City College since '12 and teach at San Diego Portfolio Studio. My courses are focused on website and mobile app strategy, branding, persona development, UX and visual design.


Brands I've worked with


there's more to design

than designing

Everything is more beautiful because we are doomed. You will never be more lovelier than you are now. We will never be here again.
