IN BRIEF
I’m an interdisciplinary visual designer who likes to specialize in brand identity, experiential design, and, more recently, illustration & animation. 

I’m also a photographer (both film & digital), formerly a staff photographer in journalism and collegiate sports, and I’ve shot a few weddings here and there. I nerd out on type, am probably a filmmaker in another universe, and can never keep enough seltzers in the fridge.

In my free time I’m probably curating yet another spotify playlist, pretending to be a bartender, or out on a hike. 🎧🍸🥾
