Introductions are in order! Here is a little about me before we talk about you.

 

I was born in Baltimore, Maryland a year before the bicentennial. I am the son of an architect which explains my handwriting, I grew up in the heydays of the 80’s Saturday morning cartoons, having only 4 channels on the TV, Otter-pops, summer breaks spent exploring in the woods, skateboarding and daily after school life lessons from He-Man and GI Joe.

I bounced from Baltimore to Ocean City, MD and to Orlando, FL before getting an itch to head west (must have been all that Apple II Oregon Trail time in grade school) and landing in Reno, NV, “The Biggest Little City in the World”.

In my time I have worked some big and small names, getting an incredible mix of experiences and tales to tell along the way. For the last few years while completing my MFA studies I have been working as an in-house Senior Graphic Designer for a destination resort company as well as dabbling in freelance projects on the side.

I am a collector of tin space toys and designer art toys. Love to read (time permitting with MFA in the works), tossing a lacrosse ball around and catching movies in the theater. I love spontaneous road trips for inspiration and always done for getting my hands dirty with a crafty project.

A visual storyteller & creative noise maker. Crafty, spontaneous, problem-solver, funny, easy going and creative are just a few of the words that clients and peers have used to describe me.

As an experienced veteran of graphic design, my responsibilities have covered:

• Brand identity and logo design.

• A wide range of print design:
   Menus, Annual Reports, Brochures, Direct Mail, Themed Events, Club Posters, etc.

• Brand development with implementation across multiple channels.

• Direct mail marketing and email templates.

• Environmental graphics:
   Billboards, large scale digital signage, wayfinding systems, off-site pop-ups, etc.

• Social media content and strategy.

• Copywriting and photography for marketing and consumer use.

• Research and brand strategy implementation.

Thanks for taking some time to get to know me a little bit. Now that we have a few things to talk about let’s get in touch, I'd love to hear from you! Let’s see if we are fit for each other and find out how we can help each other out.
