Greetings, thanks for visiting. I am a Kansas City resident, artist, and musician. I enjoy creativity and the process that it takes to realize the creative potential that exists everywhere. I spend my time studying art, playing & writing music with my band, preparing food, brain storming projects, hanging with my pets, attending music festivals, studying new technology, being outside, playing disc golf, kicking it with my friends, and knowing the people that inspire me.

I am currently self-employed and support myself through providing custom business design work for my clients. I am always looking for new and exciting projects to be a part of. If you are interested in working with me, please take a look around my site and don’t hesitate to get a hold of me.

I am a self-taught designer and musician. I was home schooled growing up and have always had a strong interest in entrepreneurship. I studied Design Engineering through Toronto City before dropping out to do my own thing. I started freelancing part-time around 2004 never stopped. From 2008 through 2010 I worked at a few privately owned web-development firms specializing in front-end development and graphic design. This experience inspired me to try freelancing full time. I currently work closely with Pipeline Productions & a few other entertainment related entities.

How do I design?

I organize disorder. I find similarities and patterns inside of chaos. I give information a voice. I am conscious of process and can justify change. I design with the experience of the user in mind and utilize the power of interactivity to streamline and engage. I have fun and I let it show in my work.

 

Technologies & Methods

I’m familiar with a number of technologies & methods that help me deliver cost effective solutions in less time than organizations with many employees.
