A little about me...

Creating has always been my calling; I want to be able to solve any problem that comes my way with a beautiful and thoughtful execution. I enjoy working with identity, branding, illustration and people just as excited as I am about making new work. Outside of design, I love treating myself to a good book, traveling, watching Star Wars (but only 4-6), and spending time with my dog.
