The Rose and I

For the past three months, I've been the production designer on a virtual reality short film for Penrose Studios. Last night I had my first premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival!

I've been off the radar for a time; for many years working on super secret stuff at Pixar Animation Studios (work you've likely seen in one form or another by now; I'll tell you some stories about Pixar later : ) —, and for the last few, doing brand storytelling and strategy work for the swiftly moving and very dynamic startup, Airbnb.

I haven't made much of an effort to publicize this work, but it's been fascinating, expansive, and exciting, and, despite my general modesty, some of it has garnered attention in the business world, gaining mention in such auspicious places as Fast CompanyInc. Magazine, The Harvard Business Review, and Sequoia Capitol's blog, Grove, to name a few choice publications.

The work has aged a little — it's a few years old now — but it was realized with all the love, sincerity, and careful attention that I brought my to my work in animation, and, really, to all of the projects I've had the pleasure of working on. I learned so much in the process of collaborating with the bright and enthusiastic artists and designers I met at Airbnb and I'd love to share a some of our work and tell you a bit about the process of making it.

It might take some time, but stay tuned! These have been some big years.
