About

Hey There,

By now you've probably come to the conclusion that I am a graphic designer. But I'm more then that. I'm a maker, a team player, a doodler, and a problem solver. An adventurer and an explorer. Ever since I was a kid riding around on a skateboard, I've known that I wanted to be a designer. I've always loved creating things; Building features to drag down to the street and skate, screen printing, and customizing everything I could get my hands on. 

Now, in my professional career of 6 years I think I am so lucky to have stayed on my path, and still very much love what I do. One of my favorite design quotes is, "Design for people, not designers". To me this captures what design can do. Most of the time our end product is designed for people to utilize and learn from. Whether it be a way finding icon, a logo marking a favorite brand, or literature of some sort, in the end "everyday people" will be using it. That doesn't mean it shouldn't look good, it should look down right amazing, but the end user should always be in mind...even if you have to open them up a little.
