My story

I spent the nineties working in advertising,  traveling back and forth from NYC to LA during the action sports explosion.   Before I started with 1972, Design, I was taking pictures and art directing for skate + streetwear brands.   Working with hip hop artists and styling cool athletes developed my passion for blending youth culture with streetstyle.      I suppose I was born with the entrepreneural spirit, but that was before you called it that and could earn a living with an iphone or work in social media as a ce-webrity.  

Balancing strategy with creative has always been part of my marketing mixtape.    I love creating agile communities and teams that work together towards mutual goals.  My passion is engaging + exciting consumers with culturally relevant stories, alliances and visual narratives that push innovation and connections.
