I'm a freelance visual designer based in Portland, Oregon. I specialize in brand & logo development, package design, illustration, motion graphics, editorial layout, web UI / UX design. I grew up in a small town in the mountains of Lake Tahoe. Early on I was influenced with the emerging DIY culture of snowboarding and skateboarding, and was consistently motivated by the music, design, fashion, and creative personalities of the time. These interests lead me and inspired me to work as a creative in the design industry.
Deep roots in my past and present environments have molded me into a designer that bases projects on craftsmanship, an eye for detail, with a strong independent expression. I find quality in the process of design; ideation, development, revision and feedback. I strive to have tactile visual elements and feel that you should always start a project with research, planning, pencil, and paper.
