Just a guy from Texas with a passion for design, technology and motorcycles.
I started in my early years building a strong background in print and web design / dev. I then honed my skills in UI design/UX strategy and pursued the web/app realm for a while. I found my real love is in art direction, specifically branding. I like getting to touch all of the pieces of a brand and craft an identity in its various forms.
I’ve worked on teams large to small, on-site and remote, in all kinds of sectors. I ended up finding my happy place in my home office with my furry little family. In my spare time, I ride motorcycles, shoot stunt video/photography, and run a motorcycle-related Youtube channel.
Software I’m fluent in: Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premier Pro, After Effects (some), Lightroom, Animate, Sketch, Zeplin, InVision, Balsamiq, Axure, HTML5/CSS3/Bootstrap, Coda/Dreamweaver, WordPress and JQuery.
Actively seeking remote full-time opportunities and freelance projects.
I work with you to create a unique identity that conveys your brand’s message and ideals. A solid logo and identity is the foundation of a great brand. Once established, I determine colors, typefaces, social media graphics, and all the necessary supporting elements to begin building brand recognition.
I learn about you and your goals before we put pencil to paper. The best projects start with a well laid plan and a clear vision in mind. The brand discovery process allows me to determine what you need, in what order I should deliver those items to be most effective, and create a plan of action.
I build websites that engage visitors, communicate clearly, navigate easily, look great and most importantly, elicit action. I know the web is no longer just on the desktop. Therefore I put a huge emphasis on responsive design, which ensures that viewers get the best possible mobile browsing experience, no matter what device they’re using.
Good illustration is art, design, technical skill, and talent all wrapped in one beautiful package. It involves a high level of knowledge in all these areas. I’ve always had a passion for illustration. I started back in the day with gig poster design and have since learned to integrate illustration into the web, video, print and across all types of media. Whether through an infographic, custom iconography, or poster design, illustration can evoke emotion like no other medium.
Great photography can make all the difference. It has the power to make supermodels out of products, tell a complete story in a single snapshot and most importantly, sell. I have the expertise to deliver stunning photography that makes your marketing efforts shine. I’ve also recently started drone video/photography and pursuing my 107 pilots license.
I design print materials, tradeshow/event booths and promotional materials that communicate your brand’s character. Graphic design was rooted in print, and that’s where it all began for me. Although print is often overlooked with advancements in the web, I still believe there is something really special about the organic experience of holding a printed piece in your hands. Bringing your brand to life through tangible objects is something I love to do.
