For over 20+ years, I have been focused on building strategic relationships aimed at developing quality business solutions, that impact brand design and development. As a practice and not as an off-the-shelf service.

Fine art was my foundation, design became my purpose. I am a Brand Consultant, Strategic Advisor, and an International Design Judge.

My focus is on Brand Design and Development; Brand and Marketing Design Judge; Writer; Art and Design consulting; Advertising, and Marketing; and I usually function as a Creative Director: Vision; Strategy; Identity; Experiences, and Design Solutions.

I am also a writer and a member of the PAC Global Leadership Awards International Judging Commission. In addition, a proud member of PAC IOU (Inclusive Opportunities & Universal Design). 

"Teamwork is so important that it is virtually impossible for you to reach the heights of your capabilities, or make the money that you want without becoming very good at it." - Brian Tracy


I am not a self-made man, I do not believe anyone is self-made... I am inspired by people, passionate about teamwork, and practice a holistic approach to delivering excellent solutions that drive business results. Over the years, I have learned the value of teamwork, and have seen the benefits of collaboration. I support a constant gain of knowledge and experience, I believe we should always be open to learning, but I do not support being a Jack or Jill of all trades. We must form effective teams with valuable thinking, and valuable people.

Years ago I functioned as an Executive Creative Director as an agency partner. I am the Founder of SCHiZO Inc, an art and design-focused lifestyle brand that supports mental health awareness. I sometimes consultant, and consulted on various projects with start-ups, events, and companies in different capacities.

​My interests are not necessarily looking for brave people, but that would be nice. Not everyone brave is smart, I am interested in boldness, bold people go against fear. Radical thinking, sometimes that's trapped inside an introverted soul, sometimes it's an extrovert, people who ask why and what if, they say "we can if". I am interested in the competent, without that none of the previous means anything.

The smart, savvy, don't give a fuck types who actually know what they're doing or are willing to learn how to do it better.

People who are intrigued, the people who think about how to improve or create great experiences before it's requested, futurists. I look for financial value because every great solution must be sustainable, and sustainability needs funding. Happy clients received great solutions and added value to their businesses, most importantly, they invested in their businesses and brand. I only work with those clients and the professionals who serve those clients.

These are big asks, but I have met and worked with all these types of people and world-class talent is not cheap. If you are one of these clients or one of these professionals looking to collaborate, let's have a chat.
