Working with Google Creative Lab in NYC, I helped concept, develop, and create content for the Photos for life and
Free Up Space campaigns. As part of a small team, I worked hand in hand with an editor and Creative Director to
concept new ideas, build out assets, and source unique video clips via youtube. Ultimately we delivered multiple commercial
spots promoting the campaigns and the Google Photos app itself.

Working with Google Creative Lab in NYC, I helped a massive team to concept, and design various elements for the 2014 Androidify 2.0 release. This included various elements for a physical launch in Times Square as well as a digital presence across the web. For Times Square, I developed instructional posters, custom postcards & ticket takeaways, stickers, shirts, email templates, and reworked the Androidify app to run a special edition for the Android Ambassadors to use while at the event. For online, I worked with writers to concept and develop eight original banner ads, various sizes of static companion banners, and social media platform headers.

Working with a small team at Saatchi & Saatchi, I helped to redesign the interior of Walmart stores. While involved with elements storewide, I was leading the overall look and feel of the Fresh section, meaning the produce, deli, meats and seafood areas. We wanted to bring a more authentic and considered approach to the food shopping experience by bringing in a local market feel. This entailed creating everything from custom type faces for price tags and labels, to selecting paint colors for back walls, deciding on material finishes at specific touch points, and directing photography styles for large scale photos around the perimeter of the store.
Working with the brand team at Cinco, we helped Nike tell the story of current day baseball. We worked with photographer Jed Jacobsohn to get a vast library of amazing in action shots throughout the season and in studio with Swanson Studio to capture the new 2012 equipment. I helped art direct on photo shoots, design templates, concept in store layouts, and create original design elements for the brand. In the end we delivered third party brand guidelines, print and web execution examples, in store fixtures, and a diverse library of assets.

Working with the team at Radical Media, I lead the UI design for an immersive experience for American Express and the NBA. This experience told the story of four professional basketball players by diving into their past, focusing on their signature moves, and allowing the audience to get a better feel for who they really are. This required designing elements for an installation during the All-Star Weekend that scaled from seven foot HD screens all the way down to an interactive website that was also mobile friendly. Radical Media shot original footage of four players, John Wall, Anthony Davis, Mason Plumlee, and LaMarcus Aldridge, using custom camera rigs that allow the viewer to rotate the camera angle at anytime while they preformed their signature moves. I designed all the elements for onscreen interaction and worked closely with the development team to prototype the experience before release.

Partnering with the 100 Gates Project I was selected to paint a roll down storefront gate in the Lower East Side. Once selected, I worked with the store owners to concept and finalize a design for the gate, which just happened to be on the building I lived in. Through a generous grant of 200 dollars by the project, I was allowed to purchase all the supplies I needed to complete the installation, and keep any remainder for myself. I began painting the gate black late one evening and woke up at 5AM to finalize the painting the next morning.
Over the course of a year, I set out to watch 365 movies in 365 days. Not one a day specifically, but 365 in total only allowing twenty short films. After completing the year I utilized a silk screen class at PNCA and designed two posters to show all the movies watched as well as an infographic detailing specific data gathered throughout the year. Both posters were hand silkscreened in white and metallic silver ink on Arches black paper.
Screengrabs from every film watched: ONE YEAR IN FILM.

The Collier Campout was a three month long camping road trip taken by my wife and I. We left on August 30th and returned back to South Carolina on December 1st 2016. Over those three months, we visited 15 state parks and drove over 13,000 miles through 19 states. Afterwards I built a site to showcase the trip and photography taken during the trip so others could experience the trip outside of me telling them about how amazing it was. This involved learning a bit more html, css, and the fundamentals of mapbox.
