I’ve been working as a creative professional for over 18 years, creating innovative brands and experiences for enterprises, and fostering creative teams. I’ve held several different roles in a variety of environments, and have designed for a wide range of mediums, including web, print, mobile, and video.
I have helped small businesses, startups, growth-stage companies, and individuals launch their businesses and grow by creating meaningful and compelling design solutions at a holistic level.
Art and design have been my passion since I was a kid even before I heard the word “graphic design” or even I knew that such a subject existed. Art was my favorite subject at school. I loved observing shapes, colors, typefaces, and fascinated with logo marks. It always struck me how a simple drawing could tell so much about a company! That drove me to study art and design.
Graduated from Academy of Arts University in San Francisco in 2000, I got my first job at a design agency that exposed me to various clients. I have designed various brand identities and websites for startups launching their products and services during the dot-com era. I managed all phases of design projects, worked with many well-known, diverse technology clients such as Marketo, Riverbed, Netgear, Samsung, L3 Technologies, Elo TouchSystems, and many more.
Over the last decade, I have worked with startups, strategically shaping their brands, and telling their brand story through creative solutions.
Recently, I was a Director of Design at WANdisco, an enterprise cloud computing company where I led the effort in major website rebrand, managed and led a team of designers to support the marketing organization.
