Look At My Work

ABOUT

A native of Southern California, I've been interested in design and the arts since I was little. These days, I spend more time designing web graphics than I do with Ninja Turtle chalk doodles on the sidewalk, but my need to create, change, improve, and iterate has almost always been part of me. "Design" means so much these days, and I love the challenge of creating things that are pleasing to the eye, functional, and easy to grasp. I'm constantly looking to improve my own skills so that I can, in turn, improve the experience of anyone who interacts with my work.

Identity & Branding
Identity, branding, logos: No matter what you do, you need them, and I can help.
Web Design
Now that this new "internet" thing looks to be taking off, you may want to be part of it.
Photo Editing
I'm more comfortable with Photoshop than walking around parts of my own neighborhood.
Audio Editing
What's this have to do with design? Nothing, but I've edited enough podcasts to have learned a thing or two.
