Early on in my career I decided to try several flavors of design before finding out digital was the flavor that made sense to me. As a result I have a breadth of experiences, some weird, some once in a life time. I've been on the in-house side of rolling out a brand for a large Healthcare system. I've been involved in several large, complex experience design roll outs. I've helped repair a big bird for the Jim Henson Company.
The one constant in my multidisciplinary experience has been that I don't stop at the idea.
Ideas are easy.
Getting ideas to market is the hard part.
