I’m a Creative Professional with a passion for design and a part time comedian who loves to make wise cracks to keep the positive vibes in the office flowing. I work best when challenged, because I get bored if I don’t. I love short walks on the beach and 4 hour surf sessions. I use 100% of my brain. 51% thinks about being creative + 40% about women and surfing + 8% about what I can give back to this world and 1% about rising gas prices.
