Just a bit about me.

I have found that design at its best is a fusion of research and art. It's where purpose meets beauty. Designers take creative solutions and infuse meaning and purpose to enrich our visual landscapes. The thing that makes design successful is time, working tirelessly to fully understand and rationalize the purpose of each project is what allows design to find its purpose and address its intended audience.

In another life I am sure what I would have become a scientist of some sort. I approach design with an empirical method. Handsome design stands on its own. When its backed with clear communication and supported with research it commands attention.

My work experience spans the industry, working in packaging, brand strategies, and promotional marketing. I have been tasked with art directing, conceptual design, and production design.
