I’m a passionate graphic designer capable of creating traditional and new creative graphic solutions for any design issue. I love to design clean, smart, and effective products. My style is clinical and type based. I am methodical and my work takes on a technical look. I work strongly with grid based sensibilities and design. I have a fascination with icon systems and have fallen in love with creating them. I spent most of my formative years living and traveling abroad, experiencing different environments, and because of these experiences I have a unique cultural perspective that I try to impart onto my design philosophy.
