I have experience working in outdoor industries and lifestyle/fitness brands. Over my nineteen year career I have worked on such brands as The North Face, Oakley, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, SRAM/Avid, Devil's Thumb Ranch, CatEye and Powerhouse Gym. Within these brands I have had the opportunity to create advertising campaigns, packaging, branding and conceptual design. Not to mention the work that I have done for awareness and behavior change for CDOT, Coloradans Against Auto Theft (CAAT), Delta Dental and Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE). Before beginning my career I obtained a BFA degree from Southwest Texas State University (now Texas State University). I have also taught at the collegiate level for Metropolitan State College of Denver and Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design.
