Art Direction & Brand Strategy

Consider me a Rick of all trades. A master of none is oftentimes better than a master of one.

I’ve been freelancing as a graphic designer since high school, but my professional journey has shown me how design is most effective when it has your company's enthusiasm, when it's consistent, and when it's part of a larger marketing strategy and brand story. I'm always looking for new ways to contribute to that mix in a meaningful way.

Please take a moment to see a sampling of my work, and I hope you'll decide that I'm the right person to join your team.

When I'm not grinding away at skills or languages I'd like to add to my toolbelt, I'm working to cultivate a unique style by cross-pollinating ideas in new ways. I'm convinced that concept is key in making meaningful work or beautiful art.

With whatever time that’s left over, I've been getting to know my backyard: the Cascades.

Get in touch and let's create something that matters!
