ABOUT

Thank you for visiting. My company, Janus Design, Inc., specializes in experiential design, with 20 years of experience and expertise in multiple mediums applied to a broad spectrum of markets. I believe in creating a final product or experience with 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 the thousands to hundred millions, 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. Feel free to contact me with opportunities, I'd love to hear from you.
