Process

Management & Communication

I believe that communication is the key to managing any situation. If everyone has the information and assurance needed we can thrive.

Project, Task, and Time Management

Forward thinking, agile planning, and taking action is my recipe for meeting deadlines and satisfying customers needs with effective solutions.

Design & Development Production

Collect, connect conceptualize, and iterate until the design has been maximized for the given application & constraint.

Organization & Systems

Amidst the creative flow are structures & order to navigate and pivot in times of scope, hand-off, deadlines, and more. This system keeps resources aligned.

Recommendations

"I recently had the pleasure of working with Cru on a number custom design pieces for Pure Cycles. We had initially discussed a series of custom helmets for charity. When delivery time came, Cru not only delivered an amazing set of helmets, but went beyond the ask, and produced amazing collateral to complement the series. We were all blown away by the skills and attention to detail presented by Cru. I look forward to working with him again on future designs."
