For more than 25 years I’ve created brands that capture the imagination, motivate people, shape public policy, and save lives. From The Discovery and Learning Channels and Johnson & Johnson to American Cancer Society and Gloria Steinem & Pearl Jam, my career has always been about working with people and trying to make the world better.

I’ve worked with large agencies like advocacy giants, GMMB, and PorterNovelli; boutique studios with a focus on Hispanic and minority outreach; an alphabet soup of .gov agencies like EPA, NIH, and USDA; and for clients such as The Discovery and Learning Channels, Johnson & Johnson, (Senator) John F. Kerry for President and Vision Council of America. In 2000 I started DesignFish to work directly with clients like The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children lobbying for the establishment of a national AMBER Alert system, and UNCF (formerly United Negro College Fund) celebrating the Fifth Anniversary of their worldwide partnerships as well as philanthropic events and fundraisers with former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop, Gloria Steinem, Pearl Jam, Texas State Musician Marcia Ball, and former President Bill Clinton, to name a few.
