At the age of seven, Dean planned to be an
architect like his dad. At the age of ten, he earned his allowance by shading
in his father’s drawings and visiting construction sites. At thirteen, he developed
a fascination with cultures and a joy in finding parallels among their various
traditions and ways of communicating. Years of subliminal lessons in line, form,
and color combined with his love of stories, lead to graphic design and
communication studies at Florida Atlantic University.
As RMW’s Communications Manager, Dean is adept at telling the stories of the firm’s people and projects through a variety of media and is at his best when collaborating with the firm’s teams and studios on projects that are equal parts creative and analytical. He is tasked with creating a compelling library of project photography, curating the firm’s voice, and conveying RMW’s unique culture, a role he undertakes with grace and equanimity.
Dean has traveled
widely and lived in diverse locations around the world. In addition to design
and the love of a great short story, he enjoys yoga, swimming, road trips,
photography, house concerts, and quality time with family and friends.
