Some of my favorite superhumans are my parents, Wim Hof, Stan Lee, & Bell Hooks. Lately, I’ve been listening to this and am reading Peace River & Other Treasure Stories. When I’m not helping brands find their way, I’m drawing or building wood stuff or foraging bananas from a local forest. I also run SBS & Knuckies.

Wayfinding

Your “brand” is not your logo, ecosystem, slogan, hashtag, or assets. Your brand is the residual emotion and narrative felt by consumers after letting you into their homes & hearts. Make it count.

Knuckies

We directed the product development and launch for Knuckies. Beta testing with 100+ core users led to an assembly-free design manufactured and sold by Shapeways.

Over 80 prototypes, 9 unique models, ecommerce, video, photography, and illustrations.

Old Familiar

Reverence, curiosity, perspective. Fueled by an appreciation for the scale of nature and recognition of our dependence on it. Old Familiar is a audio production house in the heart of Orlando, FL driven to engage individuals through the medium of sound. An expression of our ancient connection to the rhythms of life.
