I design to communicate.
I'm an art director/designer with an overactive imagination and outgoing social tendencies. My passion is utilizing design to engage, inform, inspire, and ultimately accomplish a brand's strategic goals. Regardless of the medium—print, multimedia, or video—the creative process, from concept to completion, is the adrenaline that keeps me motivated. In my spare time I hand draw letters, sit on the board of AIGA Orlando, and can often be found indulging my obsessions for family, NFL, the city of Cincinnati, and Jimmy Buffett.
