Prior to TED, I consulted with New England based startups and was an Art Director for ESPN, where I advanced front-end design standards and helped pioneer the first live sports applications. Before ESPN, I worked for some of Colorado's top design agencies, leading interactive projects for clients like Spyder, Steamboat, and HP.
