While he is experienced in both print and multi-media, his personal strength lies in illustration, branding, informational design, and data-visualization.
Logos and icons, infographics, show-flyers and posters are some of his favorite elements to layout. He loves taking a seemingly confusing set of information and organizing it through design into something simple to understand.
He truly enjoys the problem-solving that goes into conveying an abstract concept as a simple, single image that anyone can understand. Whether it's a book cover, technical illustrations, or fitting a lineup of 100 artists onto a single postcard sized flyer, design challenges are what feed his never-ending quest to try something new.
His interests are far and wide. He gets bored of doing the same thing all the time so he's constantly on the hunt for a new "rabbit hole" to go down. This rings true in his art, music tastes, personal research projects, extra-curricular activities, hair color, you name it. Stagnation is his arch nemesis.
He gathers inspiration from a plethora of topics and "mystery" is always a driving force. The nature of consciousness, quantum physics, ancient history, the taboo... he finds himself constantly digging into the fringe of art and science and burying himself into topics he'll never fully understand. The un-answerable, un-fathomable, un-graspable is what keeps his soul alive.
Does this answer the question of "what are my interests?" He's not sure, but he hopes it helps!

He's been a designer for over 2 decades now and have worked with all types of clients. From Fortune 500 to Mom & Pop shops; Tech industry to Medical to Food and beyond, He's got a long, diverse list of clients and he's always excited to add to that list!
With a Bachelors in Advertising Design, much of his career has been spent in Ad agencies all over the country. After all, what is a graphic designer doing if not creating marketing materials for their clients?
He's been drawing since he was old enough to hold a crayon. Art and Illustration is and will always be a passion of his. The business side of professional illustration may be one of the newer additions to his career, but he's definitely no stranger to the drawing board.
Well, he has a bachelor's degree in Advertising Design, and have worked in Ad Agencies for over a decade. It's suffice to say that he's well acquainted with most any type of advertisement :)
His most recent job was with a digital marketing firm where his main client was T-Mobile. The majority of what they built was emails. Do you have T-Mobile, MetroPCS? Then you've probably seen his work. He's also made them for X-Box, Microsoft, Amazon, and many more.
Technical illustrations, icons, logos, digital paintings... Illustration is one of his first loves and as soon as he had access to the tools he moved his art into the digital realm. The best part of design is getting to create!! The digital world just gave him more canvases to work on.
It's art!! He loves it. Ethereal, psychedelic, contemporary; whether it's for website/email backgrounds or a nice, mood-setting image to direct the eye to the headline or title of a flyer or book cover, abstract art is both beautiful and functional. It's also a great way to bypass the expenses of purchasing stock imagery.
His graphic design background began with logos and they're forever prominent in his freelance and office career. From bands, to corporate businesses, to weddingsâ€”logos are a mainstay. Plus, they're just fun!
Especially in today's digital world, banner ads come with the advertising territory as well as the designs that need to be able to fit multiple obscure sizes and formats. Both animated and static imagery.
Post cards, letters, and envelopes of all shapes, sizes, and folds are where he honed my skills. His education background started in print design so he's literally been making these since day 1.
Both print and digital, corporate and small biz, he's laid out many a newsletter. You have weekly or monthly news you need to let people know about? He can help you get that information out there in a beautifully presented way that keeps your readers coming back for more.
Data visualization is one of his favorite types of design. Whether it's an eye-catching chart to level up a client presentation or a simple graph that needs to be instantly readable in a mobile app, the design challenge that comes into play with infographics is one that always piques his interest.
Ohhhh the brochures. Trifold, gate folds, abstract/creative folds, he's done them all. He enjoys the design challenge that comes with a brochure. There's usually a large amount of information and imagery that needs to be organized into a smaller, format-restricted, layout and figuring that out is one of my favorite parts of design.
He's helped several freelance clients with their book covers, including 1 cookbook. They're always fun!!
