  • Based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Designing, building and creating is a life-long passion of mine. Discovering this, as a youth my dream was to be an inventor, so I pursued a degree in Industrial Design. Over the years I have practiced in several different fields ranging from toys, movies, physical and computer games.

    A few highlights of my career to date created a water park with a 70-foot waterslide, published illustrator and author of a children’s book that teaches about the solar system and built social games that entertain millions of people per day to name a few.

    A recurring theme in my work is my interpretation and gamification of science, nature, and history into learning material apportioned in a fun and engaging way. I’ve dedicated my career to building playful learning and educational experiences starting with companies such as LeapFrog and more recently with Zynga (early pioneers in the social gaming industry).

    Odd Fact: Longtime hero of mine has been George Washington Carver Inventor of over 300 uses for peanuts, but not peanut butter.
