I am a designer and photographer with over nine years of experience solving problems visually and creatively. Graphic design is a core focus, but I am also equally adept at problem solving and storytelling through video, photography, UI and UX design, and yes, even print.

Along with a strong design background, I have an equally deep knowledge of photography. My diverse skill set was developed throughout college and into my professional career as I worked as a full time graphic designer while acting as principal photographer in my own studio. While at the studio, I developed additional skills in key areas like financial and business planning, as well as the all important art of managing the client relationship. I currently pursue photography as a true enthusiast, shooting for myself, family and on personal projects.

In my current role as senior designer at Spredfast (formerly Mass Relevance), I am diving into the world of social acceleration through design. Already, I have had the opportunity to help clients like Twitter, SXSWi, Mashable, NASDAQ, Goody’s and Viggle with social visualizations. Most recently, my work has been featured at CES, SXSWi, Digital Entertainment World and E3. Read Less

As usual, the design and creative industry is constantly changing. Creative types are tasked with keeping up with changes, being aware of trends and applying new technologies or techniques when it makes sense to do so. Add to that ever evolving consumer preferences and consumption channels, and you've got an equation that is only solved by continual improvement and constant motion.

I try to stay in motion in a couple different ways. One is through continuing education focusing on design technique, mobile, design software and hardware. I also maintain an Adobe Certified Expert certification in Photoshop and regularly attend industry events and conferences to see whats happening nationally. I also attend local design events through AIGA in Austin, TX to network and see what's happening on the local level. Read Less
