Networking, randomness and such...
I'm a visual designer and art director with a foundation in fine arts. Digital marketing and user interface design has been my focus for the past 8+ years with added experience in identity and print design. I've worked with a diverse group of clients, from leading agencies to grassroots companies, and listened to their unique needs to make sure the design is reflective of the brand and captivates the audience.

A Work in Progress:
This site currently serves as a quick overview, highlighting some of my digital and print work over the past few years. I plan to expand the site to showcase individual projects in; illustration, screen printing, letterpress, art projects and maybe even sharing my thoughts. Check out my etsy shop, UnderHand for prints and stationary or my Instagram feed to see what I'm working on, doing and seeing.

To see some recently live projects check out Harley-Davidson, AutoNation and Handle iOS app + Chrome extension.
