Current
Status

At the moment, I don't have a concrete plan for my photography– it's currently my unadulterated creative outlet, and I'm rather protective of it. I'm currently shooting for several photo books, prints, and potential shows while continually refining my craft. While I've primarily focused on landscape/travel/incidental stuff to this point, I'm planning to introduce more lifestyle and portrait work. This is both to expand my horizons in subject-matter while becoming more commercially viable– with a strong emphasis on the former. If you think you fit anywhere within these plans (agencies, models, other photogs in these areas), I'd love to chat.

I'm independent at the moment, prioritize remote, contract opportunities. I'm also keeping an eye out for any potential full-time places to land where the fit could be right. I'm open to passion project-collaboration. Please hit me (w/ ideas and/or interest).

Intro

‍I’m an independent Art Director ± Designer with ±10 years of practical experience. Across those years, I have been extremely fortunate to have worked with the likes of Apple, Google, Beats, Fila, Alo, Nixon, Volcom, Red Bull and more.

While I’ve spent a (relatively) long time in the design world, I’ve pursued a path where I remained hands-on throughout. While I am capable of leading creative teams (having experience doing it), my current interest is more in crafting art directions, content strategy and how the two work together. I approach design with an intent focus on details that strives to not feel predictable while offering tangible business solutions– resulting in several SOTDs and a few SOTY awards. While the bulk of my work is in the interactive space, my experience and interests are far broader.
