I lead people so that we can all achieve the impossible. As a young man I believed that nothing was impossible. I was taught that if I can dream it then I can do it. This mentality has grown with me.
I believe that work doesn’t have to suck. I believe that passion for a job well done can drive creative innovation. I believe that my job doesn’t take away from my family, but enhances our lives because we are part of something greater than ourselves.
For the past 20+ years I have lived and breathed the user centered design, digital experiences, and the multimedia realm. Whether it’s website creation, managing a team, ui design, ux flows and wireframes, prototyping or creative direction for a mobile app, my passion for smart design and innovation is alive in everything I do.
It’s rare that creatively we hit the mark on the first try. As part of leading creatively there needs to be a culture of failing. I encourage everyone to take a positive risk to move the bar and innovate.
As part of my career I make sure to take on the impossible. There is always a way to accomplish a goal – but even more – there is always a way to accomplish that goal in a way that isn’t “good”. Remember we aren't here for good enough, we are here for great.
As a leader it’s my responsibility to cultivate a culture of professionals and experts. I am only as good as the team. It's my job to unlock the talent arount me.
The job I have isn’t an avenue to gain a paycheck. Getting paid is a bi-product of my passion for a job well done. I get a thrill out of leading a team of creative people, and it is my passion to raise them to a level to do any impossible task.
