Currently Chief Creative Officer at Tagboard.
I’m a designer with 20 years experience in products, media, and marketing.
My last name is pronounced “spur-tee” (but I don’t mind if it’s mispronounced). It’s French, but I’m actually French-Irish-Jewish — a mutt of nationalities, really. This is what I look like:
I’m 35 years-old, happily married, and have
three awesome kids. I love my family.
I was born and raised in Colorado and moved around a lot during my formative years, finally landing in Seattle, Washington in 1998. I’ve been here ever since.
For almost 12 years I helped lead digital and media productions at The City Church, where I launched several award-winning websites and campaigns, the most notable being “Jesus Is __”, which was nationally recognized and inspired dozens of lookalike projects and installations.
In 2009, I co-founded a company on the side called Sky Balloon with two friends. We develop iPhone apps in our spare time. Our most popular app (with over 300k downloads) is a quick-launch video camera called Capture.
In 2011, I left my career at the church to help start Tagboard, a social search and display platform.
