I am an illustrator and designer who believes in making things that are good for people. I love real books, and tend to geek out over graphic novels and comics. Sometimes I work on old cars and motorcycles to relax.

My philosophy is simple: If art and design are the facilitation of human connection, a job well done is when honesty and responsibility define the project from inception to implementation.

I live in Portland OR, and I'm always up for a chat or a new project idea. Let's weave stories not sales pitches.

Some folks I have worked with: Jenny Craig, Nike, EID, Sutter Home Wines, Florastor, Ricoh USA, Intel, JLA Public Involvement, Roots Soap Co, Context Parnters, Parr Lumber, AIGA Portland, Our Portland Story, The Crush Shop, WeMake PDX
