I'm a Multimedia Designer located beautiful West Michigan and my primary focus is the development of strong brands by utilizing research of consumer trending, media planning, advanced design and online development. My design sensibilities are heavily inspired by traditional print design and a deep love for typography. I have extensive knowledge with multimedia development, graphics, brand identity and building websites that maintain a balance of usability and effective content presentation.

I've worked with many companies over the years

(Investopedia, Great Outdoor Products, GFT Forex, Canteen, Tiggs, IAUA and more)

and have been very fortunate to have such a diversified clientele. I have ran into many challenges throughout the years and have had to either improve my skills or expand to new ones to reach my goals. Above are just a few of my bigger projects. Contact me if you would like to view more.


Born and raised in Northern California I graduated in the top of my class at Tulare Union High in 2001. After a short stint of traveling across the country I finally settled down in Grand Haven MI where I studied at Kendall College of Art & Design for 3 years. After 3 years of school and working part time at small design studio, I took a full time job at GFT Forex where I decided to continue my studies with real world experience.
