When I was little, I told my Mom that black was my favorite color, and that I wanted to be a garbage man when I grew up. There was concern. While the garbage man thing didn't quite work out, today I happily spend my time making the world – specifically the internet – a more beautiful place. As Creative Director at Sparkbox, I help our team design and build websites and applications. I also love to craft identities and product packaging, just for kicks. Over the years I've been fortunate to work with clients like Levi's, Lenovo, Yahoo, GM and Wired Magazine to name a few, write for publications like NET Magazine, and speak at events like the HOW Design Conference.
When I'm not designing websites, black t-shirts or black logos for our workshops, I'm probably hanging with my wife and two boys, playing Mario Kart, taking pics of found typography, playing basketball or working on a fun side project like Branding Bad.
