The Single Serve market is filled with opportunity and it is with pleasure I exist at Intelligent Blends to exude flexibility and a “can do” attitude with any project that comes about. With such a high % of coffee drinkers in the world our aim is to create a diligent and thorough strategy to penetrate market share and meet the goals of our internal structure and various partners. Be it our own family of brands, Hospitality, or Co packing partners I am here to help just ask.

Senior Account Representative

As a seasoned Account Executive and Regional Manager for the last 15 years, I have learned each of my customers have special needs and desires that always make my days interesting, and bringing their dreams into a physical single serve product launch and watching their sales take off makes me very satisfied indeed.


With clients ranging from Industry giants in the Coffee & Tea world, micro roasters, to large health & wellness vitamin & supplement based companies my experience runs the full gamut of single serve products.



As a self -proclaimed health enthusiast and competitive athlete, my R&D team and I enjoy bringing new products & formulation innovation and wellness inspired products to market for my clients.


In my off time I can be found roaming the Pacific Northwest towing my trailer in search of big waves to surf and deep powder to ski, and open water to paddle on my SUP with my awesome wife and Australian Shepherd “Kai”.


Let me help your team bring a new, or tried and true single serve product range to market this year!

Creative Director, Senior Graphic Designer

When I’m “forced” to work Monday-Friday, because I have bills to pay, I am the Senior Graphic Designer at Intelligent Blends. Having over 20 years experience, makes me a jack-of-all trades when it comes to all things design and prepress related. My goal is to make our clients happy and priority number 1.

If I was not “forced” to work Monday-Friday, I would spend even more of my time hiking and hanging out with my wife and 2 kids (a.k.a. dogs) and racing my bicycle around San Diego. Oh and have a few beers too…..
