My Work

About Me

I love creating work that makes you stop and take notice, sparks a conversation, and accomplishes a goal intelligently.

How did I get here? Maybe it was sniffing markers in my fort as a child, or ingesting copious amounts of Play-Doh that sculpted my path to become an artist. In any case, I knew from a young age that creating art was the only thing for me to do. Though I was an average student, with above average ability to skip class, I always found myself in the art rooms getting my hands dirty with a new project. I started college in Boston where I met other art nerds just like me, however the rolling hills of Ohio called me back and I finished my fine arts degree at OSU. I spent many years in the darkroom until it was time to quit my job, sell my enlarger, and move 2,400 miles to the city by the bay. Since that day, I've been working as an art director, designer, and photographer for corporations and integrated agencies. I am completely versed in the Adobe Creative Suite, and have working knowledge of HTML5 and CSS. In my spare time I love to play tennis, drink South American wine, have impromptu dance parties, and watch depressing movies (not all at once). My guilty pleasures include: The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Mathew McConaughey, and Mexican chocolate.

No Need To Be So Literal

It is true that a good portion of the population is pretty dense, but that is no reason that the rest of us should have to suffer by making too obvious works of art. Symbolism, allegory, imagery...
