Interactive Designer and Photographer, originally out of Cleveland, Ohio.
I studied Visual Communication Design at the University of Dayton prior to moving to Portland, OR in May of 2015. I push pixels and I push buttons. I ski, I hike, I drink wine and coffee and I’ll hit a yoga class every once in a while.
I chose this industry a long time ago because I wanted to get paid to “create”—not just digital things, but physical things, things that evoke an emotion—something you can touch and feel, bring to life and ultimately use. While I’m still finding my preferred creative niche, I think the compilation of work I've put together over the years is a very broad spectrum of competence across a wide variety of skill-sets.
My job title is “designer”, and I could sit here and talk clichés about how we’re problem solvers and Photoshop magicians and but none of that really matters. I fill voids. I execute across digital and print touch points. I design entire website and fill all the content production needs. I follow directions and while I’m not going to claim to be your next Swiss Army Knife of design chops and refined taste, l will be the clay that you shape and mold into any and every task you throw my way. I have an active inclination towards that one verb, “create”. You give me an opportunity to show you that tenacity and I’ll dish out the works.
