What is your position with MyCase/AppFolio?
I am the Manager of Creative Services here in the Marketing department.
What does your job entail?
I run our very talented Creative Services team. It’s a fast paced environment so I make sure our process is as smooth as it can be. I also design a wide range of creative assets for our marketing efforts (websites, tradeshow displays, print ads, banner ads, email campaigns, landing pages, etc.).
What is the most difficult part of your job?
Keeping up with the rapid growth the company is enjoying. It’s a great problem to have.
What’s the best part of your job?
The people, the variety, the challenges … in that order.
Where are you originally from and how did you end up in Santa Barbara?
I was born and raised in Burbank, CA. I met my wife in college on the Central Coast. The decision to move to Santa Barbara after graduating was easy given the ocean, weather, and family nearby. We tried Portland, OR for a short time but thankfully AppFolio brought me back to Santa Barbara (no offense PDX, your food is still the best).
What do you like to do in your spare time?
When I’m not with my family, I try to be in or around the ocean (surf, SUP, kayak, swim, fish). With the south-facing coastline and the Channel Islands just offshore, it really is a unique and beautiful place to play.
Tell me about your family/pets, etc.?
I’m the son of an artist and an engineer. I have one wife, one child and two cats.
