Graphic Designer, Interactive Designer, Front-End Developer, Art Director, UI/UX Designer

Denver, Colo.

I am a multidisciplinary designer and creative professional, residing in Denver, Colorado. I'm a 16-year veteran of the industry, having worked in small boutique agencies, internal creative groups for large companies, and everything in between.

I'd like to think that I've got many strengths, but perhaps the single attribute that I'm most proud of is my versatility. I secured my first studio design job out of high school, having taught myself Flash and HTML. This was at a point in time where many graphic designers hadn't made the jump to web design yet, and I earned a place because I was willing to learn things that others hadn't. That point has never been lost on me, and I've successfully built my career on being the guy on the team who was always willing to learn new things, leading me to a very broad and varied skill set.

I have extensively handled logo design, branding, interactive design, UI/UX design, front-end development, print, and social media design. Additionally, I'm familiar with full-stack development, motion graphics design, video editing, photo finishing, and general branding, marketing and advertising strategy.

While I love to get my hands dirty with design, my experience and wide skill set also lends itself well to managing teams of other designers. My practical know-how allows me to mentor more junior designers, while my knowledge of broader strategy helps me interface with my colleagues in marketing, account management, and development with ease.
