Raised in Milwaukee, a culturally rich city founded on innovation, industry & craftsmanship, naturally led me on the creative path. More recently, I’ve spent the last few years in-between Upper Michigan, Salt Lake City & Milwaukee; leaving a deep unwavering impression on me and providing me with a diverse set of tools and the opportunity to produce various projects for a wide variety of clients.

Drawing influence from popular to a variety of cultures, past and present, I’m left with a vivid imagination and a deep understanding of the creative process and how visual communication effects different individuals.

In addition to that, I’ve been involved in a number of personal and collaborative efforts, such as the formation of a community building project organized in the form of Wednesday Night Bicycle Rides in both Salt Lake City and eventually Milwaukee. I’ve also participated in a number of exhibitions showcasing personal projects, illustrations, paintings, etc. and am a contributing writer/photographer to Needle & Thread.
