“Fortune favors the bold”
(Latin proverb – Virgil)
As CraterDust founder and Creative Director, Steve manages the daily affairs of the firm. Having worked within the design industry for 29 years he’s pretty much seen and done it all.
After study at Portfolio Center in Atlanta he launched his career working independently as an illustrator and designer for 9 years before accepting a position with a notable creative agency in Atlanta. A decade later and after a few other stints with agencies along the way he once again returned to his indie roots founding CraterDust in 2013. Working across many design disciplines on Fortune 500 accounts has yielded Steve a wealth of experience implementing big picture thinking through detail-oriented work.
Steve believes in leadership by example and is a very much in-the-trenches kind of guy. With proven problem solving ability, a determined vision and an arsenal of skills and experience he still leads creative on every project and campaign CraterDust tackles.
He is fascinated by the ever-evolving worlds of science, technology and the arts. When not working, he can be found sketching and painting or relaxing with his wife and their 3 felines, Tealeaf, Casserole and Scratch, an all-black, one-eyed stray he’s convinced is a familiar.
