About

Hello.

I help build, position and connect brands with human hearts and minds. It's pretty magical stuff.

For the past fourteen years, from concept to completion, I’ve worked on just about every type of visual communications project there is. From spreadsheets to stickers, large-scale ad campaigns to complex user-interface design – I’ve just about done it all. I’ve offered my two cents on branding and design to CEOs and VPs of marketing and to the mom and pop restaurant owner around the corner. If there’s one common thread in all of the branding work I’ve done, it’s got to be authenticity.

People want to do business with authentic, genuine, honest brands – even if your product is cheap – just own it. Whether you’re selling shoes, music, running a restaurant, offering legal services, cutting hair, or fixing cars – people appreciate authentic brands that aren’t afraid to be themselves. So, who are you? Why should people do business with you? What makes you different? Answering these questions and forming those answers into a visual language (whether it’s a printed piece, or online in digital form) is how I roll.

Maybe you’re starting a business and need an identity that resonates with customers. Maybe you’ve been in business for some time, but your current identity or marketing strategy just isn’t cutting it and you’ve been ignoring it for too long. It’s never too late for a fresh start. If you have a project you’d like to discuss or would like to get to know more about what I can do for your business, feel free to reach out.
