Thank you for visiting. Myself and my company, Janus Design, Inc., specializes in experiential design, with 20 years of experience and expertise in multiple mediums in a broad spectrum of markets. I believe in creating a final product or experience with an emphasis on integrity of design and execution.
I thrive on collaboration with creative and intelligent people and am a problem solver, adept at creative solutions to challenges and opportunities with strong organization, thorough planning and clear communication.
I am experienced in managing and art directing small and large scale projects with budgets ranging from $10k to over $100mm, and both quick turn and long term schedule management. I approach all scale of projects with the same methodology and professionalism for consistently successful results.
Curious and adventurous, I am passionate about the arts, with an interest in science, and enjoy expressing myself through writing and design. I love travel, good food and laughing.
