With almost 20 years of experience in print, interactive and motion graphic design, I like to think of myself as a design generalist. I'll literally design anything. As Creative Director at Squires & Company, my goal was to bring the same level of design acumen given to print-based project work to online communication and user experience. I've been lucky enough to work with some of the most talented creative professionals in the region and have learned volumes from every one of them. Which inspired me to join RBMM, one of the most distinguished design agencies in the nation with a storied legacy of amazing creative. My wife, an Art Director at Fossil and free lance illustrator, is my greatest source of inspiration. We met at my second job, the prestigious Dallas design agency, Sibley Peteet Design. We share a deep love for art and design and she's always the first person I turn to for validation as I trust her opinion implicitly.
In my career, I have created dynamic online experiences for companies like Domtar, Mary Kay, Nokia, Nortel Networks, Marriott and Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. My print background includes designing compelling annual reports for notable companies like XTO Energy and Concho Resources, along with an entire packaging campaign for Shiner Bock beer in 2002. In 2004, I art-directed a team of animators, producers, writers and artists in creating the Telly award-winning Trivial Pursuit Star Wars Saga Edition DVD Boardgame, which included two content-rich interactive DVDs with over 700 Star Wars themed questions for Hasbro Games and Lucas Licensing. My print, interactive and motion graphic work has been featured in prestigious industry publications like Print Magazine, Graphic Design USA, LogoLounge and Graphis and has received recognition on a regional and national level.
I've also had the distinct pleasure to speak before the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) and the Dallas Society of Visual Communications (DSVC). In 2013, I was honored to judge the 9th Annual National Student Show and select some of the best student work in the country.
My greatest passions are my two amazing children and loving wife, riding BMX bikes, photography (film & digital), music, and film/television. My imagination was fueled at a young age by the movies that defined my childhood like the Star Wars trilogy and Raiders of the Lost Ark. To this day, I still do what I love and love what I do. I treasure learning and reading and try to absorb anything and everything I can to stay sharp.
