Designer

I’m a designer, musician, and die-hard Red Wings fan originally hailing from the Detroit area.

My love for design started over a decade ago after a few high school photography classes turned into a full visual communications course. It was there that I discovered my knack for creative visual problem solving, and I’ve pursued it ever since. I moved to Grand Rapids in 2008 to pursue a B.F.A in Graphic Design from Kendall College Of Art and Design, and loved West Michigan so much I never left.

I’ve had stints working at start-up’s with shoestring budgets, full-service agencies with Fortune 500 clients, software-centered experience design shops, and have been fortunate enough to help clients solve some of their toughest business problems through design. Whether it’s a new website with a beautiful and effective UI, an eye-catching new logo, or a letterpressed poster (yes, those still exist).

Outside the office you can usually find me somewhere on Kent Trails cruising on my bike, in my studio playing drums, out on Lake Michigan enjoying the beach, or at home binging on crime dramas with my wife Alyssa.

Design is so simple, that’s why it’s so complicated
