Over the past 25 years, my design practice has been a balance of leading, mentoring, and inspiring creatives, partnering with clients, and continuing to create my own work across packaging, publishing, and corporate identity.
As Executive Creative Director for 160over90, my role has been to ensure the highest creative standards across four offices and 150+ employees, and to create an internal culture based on inspiration and creative exploration. I juggle oversight on projects for clients across higher education, professional sports, consumer products and more, and act as their senior creative contact, presenting to their most senior stakeholders. Additionally, I run internal events and projects designed to keep creative staff curious and engaged.

My book investigating the creative process, Sketchbook, is available from Rockport Publishers, and is a testament to the importance of doodling during boring meetings.
”Beyond lovely” —Robert Blinn, Core 77
Prior to joining 160over90, I served as Art Director at Quirk Books, and as Global Design Director at Johnson & Johnson’s Global Strategic Design Office. At the GSDO, I helped lead design strategy for the Baby, Beauty, and Medical Devices business units, with oversight on the Johnson’s and Clean & Clear brands. This involved managing both global rollouts of package design as well as more regional redesigns in Germany, France, and Sweden. I also co-created and ran an annual lecture series (The Salon) aimed at fostering innovation and cross-functional collaboration.
I’ve also held posts at New York magazine, MTV, and Razorfish in New York, and 4.A.D Records in London. As a consultant, I’ve worked with HarperCollins, Hachette, Condé Nast, and Penguin Books in publishing, and continue to work with 4.A.D and other independant record labels on music packaging projects.
