Artists merely express their own emotions: in return they starve. Designers shape the emotions of others: they fare much better!
Though six years of freelancing I had the opportunity to build on the art of branding. After two years of corporate design and marketing I have experienced larger scale marketing. I’ve also had the opportunity to lead, to train and develop talent in a production environment.
I’ve learned this: The power of an effective marketing team is immense. There is so much underutilized opportunity in social media right now. The time is now to achieve the upper-hand for businesses who are prepared to embrace change meet their customers on a new level. I love being a change-agent in this way.
There is always a higher purpose.
I have an amazing wife and an amazing son. I couldn’t have picked anyone better. My wife and I enjoy dancing: ballroom varieties. She is my “Abigail Adams”—a clear thinker, trusted confidant, and best friend.
Being a Dad is a blast! I get to do boy stuff with my son. He may be only two but we do all kinds of mischief together. I think my wife sometimes thinks she has two children on her hands.
