I've had the distinct pleasure of working with some very talented photographers. From automotive, portraiture and product to editorial, advertising and studio shoots, I've directed, concepted and planned a wide range of projects.
Photos seen here were shot by the following list of photographers.
Das Auto Magazine is the owner loyalty publication for Volkswagen Group of America. At the time of my involvement circulation was approximately 675,000 and was published twice a year. My responsibilities included creative direction, art direction, photo direction and even some design. This meant I was heavily involved in all stages of the publication from content development to c-level client presentations and press checks. I hired photographers and illustrators, directed photo shoots, and oversaw an editorial design team.

As smartphones continue to advance and the proliferation of broadband access increases, so too does the opportunity for rich digital storytelling. As a curious creative, I've made it a point-of-interest to stay fresh on digital media and design. I've designed mobile apps for both Android and iOS devices alike and understand the challenges each present. I've designed responsive websites that look beautiful on cinema displays, tablets and hand held devices and have worked with development teams of all sizes and backgrounds to bring them to life.
The work presented here is a culmination of a very collaborative process in which I was the designer. Some are concept work that never made it past the client review. Most are published works.
