I'm a graphic designer and creative professional. For over 8 years, I have been working in the Adobe Creative Suite to hone my craft and learn invaluable skills to work smarter, faster and in more diverse ways.
Over years of design work and study, I have spent time sharpening my skills in multiple roles and through the myriad steps of the creative process. My method of work is firmly rooted in a belief that thorough communication & research, brainstorming, and prototyping are some of the constant keys to successful design solutions.
As a Director of Design for Swamp Records, I was proud to spearhead the branding of a local music festival, developing imagery and marketing materials, in both print & digital forms. This event pushed my skills in mentorship, branding, and production skills. Ultimately, the brand would make several thousand impressions on social media, expanding far beyond the original projected scope of the event.
I think a big part of life and creative work is staying in touch with your inner child. Growing up, comic books and video games were a huge passion of mine, and still are to this day. The energy and vibrant stories told in these media typically "for kids" is a huge source of inspiration for me to bring more life, drama, and fun to my own work. I firmly believe that we're never to old to laugh and feel that rush of excitement that childhood play brought us all as kids.
My specialties and skills include layout design, logo & icon design, branding, photography & photo editing, typography and illustration. If you'd like to get in touch, feel free to reach out via any of the methods here or on my website, I'd love to chat with you.
