CEO / Executive Creative Director
Since childhood, I was convinced I wanted to be an architect. I took every drafting class, design class, and opportunity to meet with architects. I even took a summer job cleaning the studio office of an architecture firm on Sundays. I would do anything to get my foot in the door.
In college, I chose to major in Engineering Physics for reasons I still can’t digest. After several painful years of three dimensional calculus, I switched my major to something that felt right. Design. The rest is history.
My first job after college was with Lippincott, a brand design firm in New York City. While I was there I got my design fix working on Nissan dealerships, airlines, and other retailers. After Lippincott, I moved on to Nike where I worked on several Niketowns and other Nike energy doors, before moving on to Footwear Design.
The journey to discover your passion can be bumpy, but once you get there it should feel right. To be an architect you must have passion. How else would you survive three dimensional calculus?
It’s a privilege to serve industries rooted in passion and to bring their brands alive.
