NEVER EVIL . . .
The creative process, problem solving, brainstorming, and the ability to bring abstract ideas to life is second to none. I try to approach every project with passion and intelligence, with the goal of yielding the best possible results.(Also, crazy in love with typography)
From sketchbooks to a Wacom Tablet, Illustration has always been a love of mine. I come up with weird characters, icons for logos, and original apparel designs from scratch.
The web adds another dimension to design. Not only does it need to be aesthetically pleasing, but it must also be functional. I'm constantly working on becoming a better coder to give others a better web experience.

A tee that ended up being a very big seller for Ghost. It was pretty meticulous, but it was a labor of love.×
A St. Louis based indie magazine contacted me for a logo. The one requirement they had was that it included a doily.×
