What I do.

I mostly do this:
Creative/Art Direction for Broadcast, Digital and Print
Branding/Graphic Development
UI/UX

Agency Operations
This portfolio is all advertising and marketing for just a few of the brands I’ve recently worked on. I have a slight lean toward the digital/multi-media end of the spectrum however my history includes design and creative/art direction for brand campaigns, digital content, product videos, photo shoots, user interaction design, team leadership, etc.

I also do this:
Illustration
Serigraph Printing

Squad19 Creative Coalition
Squad19 is a creative epicenter for both solo and collaborative explorations and executions. Limited edition screen-printed gigposters and art prints have been our specialty since forming in 2000. While also functioning as a creative network for hire in the agency sense, I’ve used the brand to lead/sponsor the organization of group gallery shows and art exhibitions benefitting charitable causes.

Lets make stuff together!
