I am a designer and illustrator, currently working as a Creative Director at Adobe. After graduating from VCU’s School of Communication Arts and Design, I moved to the Saint Louis, MO to work as everything from a toy designer to apparel line-builder before moving into advertising. As a creative director, I worked for clients like Brown Forman, Saint Louis International Airport, Accenture, and recently Adobe Systems. Recently joined the studio team at Adobe to help them create more awareness for the powerful new tools being developed in the mobile arena. Now I draw a lot and work in the Adobe Studio helping to tell, illustrate and define the mobile app tool for artists and designers.

"I was born in Honolulu, a Navy brat who moved a lot. It definitely shows in my personality and design. If anything, I became very good at adapting and absorbing my environment and it took me a long time to get to a point where I felt like my work properly reflected all those influences.

I lived in San Diego being a big fan of skateboard and surf graphics, then in DC during hardcore and punk and want all of that to feed into my love of graffiti from the years I airbrushed tee shirts and the pen and ink techniques of classic American illustrators. Throw in a huge appreciation for tattooing and hand-lettering and put it in a blender. All of those places defined me, and the Midwest is the craziest and weirdest place I could’ve ever imagined ending up. The idea that talent and creativity is only fostered in big cities on the coasts, just keeps the people here working harder and creating more. The work ethic here is inspiring."
- update, consider that work ethic moved to the west coast to work as hard but enjoy a more temperate climate and a thriving artistic community. Read Less
