Graphics geek here.

I've invested the past 17+ years studying and practicing graphic design, and I've enjoyed every moment of it.

Since earning my bachelor's degree in design in 2008, the majority of my career has been spent at independent design groups in Pittsburgh, being hand-picked and mentored by some of the city's most senior design professionals.

I've been successful in specializing within the B2B market of design with industrial products, helping manufacturers by solving their sophisticated communication challenges, interpreting them in the simplest visual way possible.

Keeping high standards for my design work has afforded me the opportunity to impact global, world-class brands such as Alcoa, PPG, Westinghouse, Calgon Carbon, Charter, Vitro Architectural Glass, Kingspan, Kennametal, U.S. Steel, EPIC Metals, and FS-Elliott.

Made in USA. 

Born and raised in Western Pennsylvania, I am a product of 1980s postmodern America, hypnotized by the spectacles of television, film, excessive advertisements, graphics, and visual culture--it's the only world I've known. After all, advertisement is America's greatest contribution to art, is it not?

I know ​Dodge has always been my favorite brand. Music keeps me alive (see gigography). I enjoy collecting examples of attractive print design, be it vintage books, records, classic horror film posters, retro computer games, or sales brochures for cars. In my limited free time, I can be found digging for these treasures in dusty second-hand stores around town. 

My creative spirit comes from diverse places: the sound and fury at a drag car racetrack, that intoxicating scent of smoke, burnt rubber and fuel; brutal, skull-piercing metal at a dive that threatens to tear my face off; the still permanence of Helvetica used with skill, keeping a composition neutral and legible.


I find a need to wander as well: the faded, sun-bleached mill towns of the rustbelt with my aged beagle, through the corridors of my mind in impossible fantasies and daydreams, and all the way out to the digital frontier of the web, with hopes to gather and return with some explanation to all the absurdity I see.

As an outsider, I am always looking in. As an introvert, I am relentlessly searching inward.

Influences: I'd be nowhere without the inspiration that I draw from my teachers, from art and eccentric, creative people, but specifically the work of: Clive Barker, David Cronenberg, Peter Saville, David Carson, Erik Spiekermann, Tom Savini, Al Jourgensen + Ministry, Trent Reznor + Nine Inch Nails, Nivek Ogre, Ian Curtis, Deborah Harry, Siouxsie Sioux, Kristin Hersh, Nergal, John Carmack + id Software, George Carlin, Garry Shandling, Doug Stanhope, Charles Bukowski, Quorthon, Glen Benton, Clyde Caldwell, and amazing type designers everywhere.
