Bio

Since 2004, I’ve lived and worked in the great city of Austin, Texas. I cut my teeth in Richmond, Virginia, where I studied communication design, art history and creative writing at Virginia Commonwealth University. Currently, I’m the sole proprietor of my own studio. I’m also a co-founder of Misprint Magazine.

Over the years I’ve been lucky to collaborate with a bunch of talented, visionary and (sometimes) well-funded Austin entities. My large, long-term projects have been working on the brands for Birds Barbershop and Fun Fun Fun Fest (and Misprint).

When I’m not doing any of the above-mentioned stuff, I’m usually hanging out in East Austin, eating tacos or imbibing a variety of cheap beer and expensive tequila or perhaps watching a select Schwarzenegger or Kurt Russell film.
