My Story

One of my clearest memories as a child is of playing in my parents backyard by myself, inventing worlds and stories with G.I.Joe’s. I can practically smell the grass I used to make huts and picture in my head the dialogue I invented as I formed fluid narratives that continued form day to day. That urge to create and tell stories has been a driving force in all that I do, be it artistically or for my work.

This website reflects some of the storytelling I have done over the years. Art, articles, games, and even the code of the site make up a series of narratives. The site is essentially a series of experiments in design, writing, and art all filtered through my personal lens.

For my day job, I am a Director, Digital Experience at Thrivent Financial. My experience spans defining and scaling organizations to designing and driving innovation solutions for my clients. As a designer and technologist I've assessed and created operating models for organizations, built digital education systems, launched customer facing digital experiences, and built interactive physical experiences through the novel use of technology.

I'm always up for a new challenge, so if you have one that you think might fit the bill for me, hit me up here or here at Mastodon. If my time has taught me anything, it is that the next exciting chapter can come from any direction.
