2021-Present – Metajive

 1998-2012 – JUXT 

As co-founder of Juxt, a notable pioneer in the digital space, I spent 15 years leading a group of highly creative, capable and adventurous team members. Through this journey we helped guide a diverse range of clients, Coca-cola, Target, Scion, Toyota, X-box to name just a few, through the birth and evolution of digital. We set our share of industry records, amassed a healthy pile of awards and more importantly impacted our clients businesses along the way. I’m most proud of our unwavering passion to engaging audiences through creative and innovative technology based experiences. Year after year our clients would keep coming back tapping that passion and the results it generated. We sold Juxt in 2008 and I moved on in September of 2012.
