Originally from southwestern Virginia, I’ve spent the last five years working as a Design Lead at McGarrah Jessee in Austin, Texas. Prior to that I lived in Denver where I was a Senior Designer at White Wave Foods and an Art Director at Cultivator.
I began my career, driven by a love for craft and typography, at California College of the Arts in San Francisco with an MFA in Printmaking. Wanting to apply that same level of craft and conceptual rigor to something more lucrative, I decided to pursue a career in graphic design and art direction. The Portfolio Center helped turn my passion for fine arts into a tool for visual communication and brand development.
Since then I’ve had the pleasure of working for a wide range of clients including YETI Coolers, Costa Sunglasses, 4ocean, Howler Brothers, Chacos Footwear, Case Knives, Vail Resorts, Telluride Tourism, Estes Park Tourism, Horizon Organics, International Delight, Silk Soy Milk, RockResorts, DIAGEO (Guinness and Red Stripe Breweries), New Belgium Brewery, United Airlines, The Lodge & Spa at Brush Creek and more, earning acclaim in Communication Arts, Graphis, Adweek, Lürzer’s Archive, Fast Company, and both regional and national ADDYs.
