Brief Summary
I am a down-to-earth creative. I run Singlebound Creative, a digital agency in San Francisco. I also take creative projects on the site. 

My path as a creative started in Silicon Valley. I migrated from the print world to web when the internet was in its very early stages, initially with O'Reilly & Associates’ Global Network Navigator (GNN – creator of the banner ad ). I've been client-side CD as well as on the  agency side. I've been CD at Singlebound Creative for over 10 yrs.

Clients include Gymboree, Sierra Club, Autodesk, Genentech, The Nature Conservancy, Men's Wearhouse, Bloomsbury Publishing and a host of valley b2b names.
