I graduated with a BA in Fine Arts from the California College of the Arts (formerly known as CCAC) where I studied Printmaking and Photography. I worked through college as a patent illustrator, was Lead Designer at Wilbur Smith (a civil engineering firm in SF) and showed my artwork at local Bay Area galleries for several years before making the leap into advertising.

I've worked at different agencies on a wide range of projects, with many different kinds of people of whom most have ended up my friends. My skills include web, mobile, interactive, print, outdoor, direct mail, painting, illustrating, sculpting, alternative photography processes, 3D printing with my Makerbot, and the occasional LED charlieplexing project.

I am the master of non-sequiturs, have an old-school sense of humor and I'm an animated GIF enthusiast. If you would like to know more or have a freelance project in mind, contact me below.
