A hands-on digital artist providing strategy, concept, design and production. I specialize in developing brands through graphic design, interaction design and motion graphics. I’ve worked with some of the worlds most recognizable companies at a number of San Francisco’s elite agencies designing for almost every channel of visual communication.
I integrate user data and client goals to develop effective concepts and strategies. Every project begins with a learning phase.
Having worked in visual design, interactive design and motion graphics for almost 2 decades, experience with diverse clients and projects make me a digital specialist with the ability to deliver on common and obscure challenges.

Michael is a true craftsman of his work. I have worked with Michael for over 12 years and have brought him in to elevate our teams at varying organizations that I have been with. His creative eye, leadership and vision is quite extraordinary. I plan on working with him for a long time.
“Mike is a very talented Art Director that I have really enjoyed working with at a couple of agencies. Mike is very unique in that he has very solid conceptual design, strategic and art direction skills but also has the knowledge and versatility to work on UX and highly technical projects. He always has a great attitude, is the ultimate team player and is by far one of the most professional Art Directors that I have had the opportunity to work with in my career. Mike would be a great addition to any team. I would highly recommend him.”
“Michael’s great connection with the customers and relentless perseverance to always make the customer happy allowed him to become the number one in demand UX developer in our company.”
“He is a rare Art Director who understands good design, movement and animation, and knows how to make good ideas come to life.”
“I always found Mike to be an excellent addition to any project we worked on. He had great ideas, good sense of design and worked well with others.”
“I am impressed with Michael on both a personal and professional level – he would be a great addition to any company’s team, or on his own, plugging in as a contractor to help bring a project to life.”
“Mike has a rare gift of being able to combine art with technical expertise (form and function). Because of this he is confident in knowing that his ideas work without comprimising quality design.”
“As a developer, I appreciated his rare combination of creative and technical skills that allowed us to speak the same language and produce more effective work. Mike is organized and disciplined without sacrificing the design impact of his work.”
