A Quick History
I started young and hungry. I got my professional start in the video game industry. I got going with competitive gaming, AAA titles, moved to mobile games then branding work, dozens and dozens of freelance projects and even car interfaces. I founded an agency in Atlanta, Georgia : The Anthem Design Group. We had a great run : 6 years, 13 employees, and many many happy customers. It was a talented bunch: You will find many of my former team members at top companies like GSN, TinyCo, Zillow and Zynga. In 2011, I sold the company and moved to San Francisco to dive head-first into the fast-paced world of Silicon Valley design. I don't just work with start-ups, I'll take any challenge on! You can currently find me rocking as Design Lead, Mobile at Blizzard Entertainment.
