Welcome to the bustling intersection of passion and creativity. Where complex ideas, successful campaigns, and ingenious creativity merge at speeds so incomprehensible, only the elite can keep up. My concepts, designs, and creations were founded in my early years as an elementary comic artist, a teenage fashion trend-setter, and ultimately at the cream-of-the-crop Pratt Institute in NYC where I achieved my Masters of Science in Communication Design after serving in the United Staes Navy.
This was my ticket to opportunity, the catalyst to my career. I moved on to motivate and manage interdisciplinary teams, both as official in-house, freelance, and A-list agency hotshots. I designed, art directed, photographed, and managed brands from the ground up. I have also been known to write a few killer taglines from time to time! Today, I am a seasoned, multi-channel agency meeting your needs as a creative director, designer, and photographer.
Portland, OR is where I lay my head, but my dreams expand beyond the realms of the universe. Mother Nature has played a huge role in my healing from post-war traumas, which led me to open up a boutique urban fly-fishing brand storefront (Soul River Runs Deep) as well as a non-profit unlike any other (Soul River Inc) that takes me to politician offices on Capitol Hill, the frigid rivers of the Arctic Circle, to the swampy marshes of the Florida Everglades.
