When you love doing something it’s hard not to take an interest in every aspect that can make it fantastic. Do this long enough and you end up picking up a range of skills that make you rather bad at staying in your lane, but pretty good at doing the right thing at the right time.
My career is rooted in design, expanded to product to better inform that design, added full-stack engineering to think and execute in our medium, and has always been oriented by a business mindset as both a commercial artist and company owner. This nice, lumpy skill set allows me to collaborate fluently with teams or execute fully to help nurture nascent ideas to life.
Which is all to say, my passion and abilities lie in helping move ideas from zero to one and ensuring they're built on a foundation that will keep them growing in the right direction.
