From hothead,



Fashion and style

Marketing, branding, product development for fashion brands. 

Music and fashion are like peanut butter and jelly. Mmm' Good. From branding to production, apparel design to dorky headwear — what people wear is an expression of what they love. I'm into that.


Yep. We're working on the next thing for 2020-2021

Oooooh, we are so excited. If you know me, you know how I love high quality products, serving folks happiness, building skilled teams and growing kick ass brands that get publicity and love from fans. 

So, yeah. We're doing that...

Luxury real estate 

Marketing, branding and advertising for high net worth real estate clients and developments.

Ew. I know.  Luxury real estate.  It sounds gross. But it's pretty rad. Living in Hawaii for more than 22 years and being an ad guy attracted to beautiful things— luxury real estate is one of Hawaii's lushest targets.  I have worked on Hawaii's largest and most luxurious property projects, developments, and I oversee all advertising for Hawaii's largest independent brokerage where we crank-out more than $1B in sales per year. 

In 2018, designed and sold the first Hothead designed and built home.



Branding, marketing, artist packaging, swag and music videos. 

For more than 28 years HOTHEAD has produced design, music video, visual communications, artist styling, and marketing for local, national and international acts.

Too many too name. Sorry landfill. But, it was worth it.

Advertising Creative Director

Branding, strategy, and marketing, broadcast for fortune 500 brands—and some little guy too.

Let's get serious. Serious brands make serious money. And, I like money. And, with global brands, you can do massive things.  

Rooted in traditional advertising and design, I've also have been a part of every significant change in the Internet. I work on brands, on companies, and on products. Wherever they need to go— Print, broadcast, social, online, environmental. If I don’t create it myself, I put together teams of specialized people that do. 

Currently I am dedicated to my work and projects in Hawaii. Any work for other companies is typically offered as consultancy.
