Who am I?

Who Am i? and what do i do?

 

I am a born and raised Oregonian; that loves great food, music, photography and design. My interest in graphic design started early in high school thanks to my exposure to vinyl packaging design. I would always try to question the design decisions and tried to envision how I would design it better. This was merely a jumping off point, though. I started to explore various graphic design related websites, I quickly learned the possibilities of field and was instantly hooked! Since then I've tried to keep an open mind by trying every aspect of graphic design possible from branding, packaging, poster, app and website design to all forms of photography.
