I am a senior graphic designer/illustrator located in Portland, Oregon. My specialty is print design, with a big dose of illustration and hand lettering. I have nearly twenty years of professional experience, and I have worked at a variety of design firms, at a few large companies, and as a freelancer. My most recent full-time position was as Graphic Designer/Art Director with a local luxury apparel brand.
Making things look great is what drives me. I thrive on creative challenges and go gang-busters with brain-storms. The fun part of what I do is coming up with the ideas. The rewarding part is executing those ideas flawlessly.
I am a storyteller.
Whether it is thirty seconds or thirty minutes, whether it’s a model selling clothing or an artist speaking on the love of his craft, behind everyone and everything lays a good story. The trick, and the beauty of it all, is telling it in a very short time.
I began filming and cutting documentaries for PBS, Frontline as well as several independent networks. I learned how to direct people, both real and hired, always looking for that special charm or look that we all bring to life.
I moved on to commercials because the challenge of moving someone to act, scream or be inspired by thirty seconds.
I concentrate on images as part of story, one always leading to the next, and building a collective whole. I love images but realize that content or even sometimes the lack of words, are an equal part of the equation.
I am a great observer, able to think quickly of my feet, size up the situation and make it come to life, both in production and in edit.
I am a director, camera and the offline cutter, always passionate about life, my work, and the people around me. Every second counts. Every moment matters and every thirty seconds can make a difference.
That’s why I am a storyteller.

I am a multi-faceted, capable illustrator and designer with experience in various forms of publication (web, periodical print, poster, comic, advertising/commercial) and styles (graphic art, comic, children’s, portrait, vector, pencils/sketch, painterly). Through the awesomeness that is modern technology, I’m able to achieve all of these digitally. I love connecting the viewer to a story, whether it’s a novel’s worth of prose, a specific theme or sometimes even a single word. Every image is a chance to give the viewer an adventure they will remember.
