Just a guy tryin to make
cool things for cool people.

I’ve been focused on graphic design for 12 years. Half of that has been my professional career. Before that I wanted to be a pro NBA baller, a comic book artist, pro skateboarder, a starving artist, rapper/producer, a fed artist, cinematographer and video game designer. Basically I’ve been creative my whole damn lyfe. I don’t take myself too seriously but I make some seriously good work for the coolest of peeps.


I’ve done things


Mi Casa

From a restaurant franchise to a children’s charity, I continuously have the opportunity to work and collaborate with many clients on a wide variety of projects. Brand and logo development, web design, print collateral, social media assets, and illustration are all different facets of design that I incorporate into my werk lyfe. 

art Director

BROCKTON A Kinetic Supply Company
JAN 2015 - March 2017

As the only designer on staff, I was in charge of all outgoing design materials. I utilized my knowledge of user experience throughout the web design process – from sitemap development and wireframing to design. In many cases I led full branding/rebranding projects by creating logos, iconography, print collateral, vehicle design and much more. Additionally, I saw campaigns through with initial concept development and the design of social media profiles, landing pages, and banner ads.
