The beauty of the outdoors has always been attractive and has resulted in me living on the northern California redwood coast, and currently in Portland, Oregon. I play guitar and other instruments, so music always keeps me moving. Sustainability in environment and community are passions of mine. I have been vegetarian for seven years and vegan for five.

For 15+ years I have been an avid craft beer fan in not only the taste and experience of the beer, but the design and art of the industry. The craft of brewing and design share a lot of similarities like creativity, research and development, refining processes, learning markets and trends and the ability to deliver a product that your market desires.

I have been a professional graphic and web designer for over 15 years. I have a broad and deep background that lends really well to branding and marketing needs.

Being a lead designer and creative director in an agency setting has given me experience executing large projects with multiple parties and team members to deliver successful products.
