Since 1994 I’ve been the CEO and Creative Director of Studio Two – the Branding and Design Agency known for it’s creative work with Theater, Museums, Regional Development Agencies, Specialty Food Brands, Architects, Law Firms, Interior Designers and Artisanal Manufacturing.

I’m first and foremost curious – I’m always wondering if there’s a better way to do things. In my work I am most effective when in a long-term creative role with my clients and their projects. Their goals become my goals – how to build stronger connections, attract larger audiences, convert visitors into customers.

I believe that good design, powerful images, and clarity of expression are the best tools I can bring to the challenge. I’m a geek by nature and I think you need to both use and grow with the tools of modern design and web publishing every day to stay connected to the possibilities. View my work at Studio Two.
