I’m a creative technologist obsessed with the intersection of design, business, entrepreneurship, and strategy.
In 2004, I founded a digital marketing agency called Digital Surgeons to fuse my love of design and technology. In the decade-plus since, we’ve grown into a global innovation & design firm that’s uncovered insights, delivered award-winning experiences, and engineered growth for Fortune 50s and startups alike.
I’m passionate about how design thinking can help frame, ideate, and prototype solutions to the complex issues that face today’s organizations. New ways of connecting, making purchases, and consuming media are displacing legacy brands and businesses. But there is opportunity in change — the opportunity to meet your consumers on emerging platforms, connect previously unimaginable dots, and design the brands, business models, and experiences of tomorrow.
I’m a keynote speaker and writer, available for speaking engagements, panels, workshops, article contributions, and podcasts. I’ve appeared at marketing conferences, corporations, and universities such as Yale, Carnegie Mellon, and UPenn’s Wharton School of Business. You can find my editorial contributions in Admap magazine and on TechCrunch, PSFK, VentureBeat, Hubspot, CMO, and Forbes.
Everything starts with a conversation. Let’s have one sometime.
