"You can only know your limits when you push past them, at which point they are achievements. In essence, there are no limits..."

My area of expertise is graphic design, being exposed to numerous different projects within advertising, marketing and sales, from print and publication to new media and visual design UI/UX. I’ve been designing professionally since 2002, having been hired to assist a well respected company with a name and brand platform change after my BFA in Graphic Design. After a huge success with their new design and name, I decided to pursue an MFA in graphic design in San Francisco from 08.04 – 12.07. After graduation I interned for a full year at a well respected firm in San Francisco, Pentagram Design, and began freelancing at some great local firms. In 2009 I settled down and became a full-time in-house designer. Currently I work as a Sr. Graphic Designer at SoundHound Inc.

Process + sketching

For me, process is one of the most important elements of any project. I believe that starting with a brainstorming session individually, with a team or with a client will help make the final outcome the most successful it can be.
