I believe in a good read, a strong cup (of coffee),
and a commitment to stay humble and offer
simple kindness in everything that I do.

My adventures in freelance design began in 2010.

I made the jump to Illustrator from AutoCAD when I decided engineering wasn't exactly my thing. Since then I've worked with like-minded individuals, small businesses and startups to help them tell their stories.

Over this time, I've been fortunate enough to work with some great folks on a variety of different projects. Each one lending ample experience, and more often than not, a new skill or two. When I felt comfortable with the basics of Illustrator, I moved on to Photoshop. From there, I worked with clients to produce printed collateral where I learned how to properly use the CMYK color model and Pantone Matching System. And then in the the summer of 2016, I coded responsive emails by hand for a startup in California. I later applied a fresh interest in all things HTML and CSS to popular frameworks, bringing prototypes from the artboard to the web. Most recently, I branched out into custom lettering to deliver a signature typeface for a client I respect and admire.

I continue to approach every new project as an opportuntiy to grow and I look forward to the future.

PS — In case it isn't clear, I'm quite obsessed with typography. And especially with the pairings that go into a font system. The poster below uses Helvetica and Monosten, for example.

PPS — I once filmed an episode of a reality show during a summer internship in Berkeley, California.
