I am a designer, design director and photographer working in Milwaukee. My design experience spans over 13 years working for independent companies, small branding studios and large advertising agencies. My passion lies in design, art direction, production, ideation and creative team collaboration.
In 2009, I had the opportunity to help start a paint design shop for Vanilla Bicycles, a high-end boutique bicycle company in Portland, Oregon.
In 2007, I designed a urban cycling hoodie for Swrve clothing brand. This became their best selling product in their lineup
In 2007, co-founded an international urban cycling. It was a passion project, working late nights, screen printing in a cold garage in the middle of winter. But it was so worth the adventure. I got to travel the world and it became a catalyst for bringing together my three passions, design, photography and cycling.
In 2013, I had an amazing experience in Paris, France working with some very talented people at a branding studio called Seenk. I still can't speak French very well.
