I work with your favorite people to bring usually-secret projects into reality.
Making it happen. (Enthusiasm is contagious, but starting is the only thing that leads to progress.)
We don’t get this time back. Have something to celebrate every day.

Creativity can feel like a risk or a liability to our clients.
We produce the world through thought.
Because it is common sense, I want to unpack it. I want to unfold it. If we assume everyone knows what that means or what it does, then we’re less-likely to about it.
I’m more interested in asking: What does our thinking do? How does it actually create a world? That is key.

Bravery is a cloak for fear.
When in doubt, say yes.
More experience doesn’t make your decisions better.
