Strategy Director at Instrument on the daily, cyclist and art director on the side.

My experience spans from leading global campaigns and brand strategy to in-depth mobile product UX. Here are a few of my favorite projects.

 

Google NEXT '16

NEXT is Google’s cloud conference. As a part of the Instrument team producing the conference branding and experiences, I worked closely with our clients to author the keynote scripts and presentations for Sundar Pichai, Diane Greene, Urs Hölzle and Eric Schmidt including slide design, transitions and animation.

specialized.com

Specialized makes some of the most innovative bikes on the planet and needed a website to match. I lead the strategy and UX design on a complete redesign of their website. We updated their navigation, shopping and storytelling to match the performance of their bikes.

Levi's commuter

We worked with Levi's Commuter, a product line geared toward the urban cyclist, for two years to overhaul their digital campaign and content strategy including 50 global influencer / photographers and the first brand partnership with VSCO.

 

Start things others can build on. Create new information. Make the complex simple.

 

There is no point at which strategy starts or ends. No set process or methodology.  Strategy is a simple case of if this, then that.  Create the narrative for how to get from where you are to where you want to go. Bring others along on the journey. Understand deeply. Speak simply.

I've been lucky enough to evolve my approach on projects with a handful of amazing clients. Here's who I've worked with:

 
 

Art Director, Producer and Model

 

For the last eight years I've been honing my craft as a cyclist and now represent and produce content for select brands. Together with a range of talented friends, I plan and produce trips and events that bring products to life to create authentic imagery and stories for web and social media. Interested in working together?

For Chris King's second soft goods collection, we took to the studio and got creative—hanging and lighting their new bottles and Cielo Road Racer frameset. The result is a fun assortment of photos to promote the new collection.
