I currently do client work through my design practice, Temper, where I specialize in leading creative strategy and establishing brand design for teams at growing companies. My career spans over twenty years in design, half of which has been spent working remotely, and primarily on branding digital experiences.
When I’m not transforming complex concepts into simple and elegant design solutions, I enjoy traveling (when possible), learning to cook old family recipes, discovering new music, and spending time with my British diplomat girlfriend and our Iranian mountain dog.
