The Journey So Far

After completing high school I attended college at McNally Smith School of Music where I received an Associate’s degree in both audio production and engineering. Pursuing a music career I moved to Phoenix and began my internship with Tall Giant Recording Studio.

While working at the studio my graphic design hobby turned into repeated freelance opportunities from bands and venues. In 2006, I decided to pursue design and marketing full-time. The majority of design evolution was with Austin-based Grav and video game giant Activision Blizzard. In addition to that, I have worked with a variety of brands, models, and artists to bring their projects to life.

Process and Philosophy

My philosophy comes down to three letters… why? I believe that answering the question of why a product, event, or work of art was created is the most important aspect to connecting with your audience and allows you to communicate purpose, vision, and value. I enjoy every component of the design process from discovery to production. Taking a simple idea through to a finished project and elevating it along the way is an amazing experience. It’s much more than moving pixels around, it’s about building a solid foundation for a business or project to move into the next stage.
