I'm a designer and artist in Portland, Oregon. My style (or non-style, if you will) is graphic and illustration heavy. I tend to filter any particular subject through thoughtful, well-intentioned humor and a fairly critical gaze.
Eons ago I operated a small and completely funky letterpress and commercial print shop. Using simple and somewhat outdated resources along with software that was still pretty new, the value of a simple and easily readable approach to design was quickly made clear. On the other hand, I like to push it all the time to see where things go. Hopefully with success, despite the crazy.
I'm inspired by doers and makers; drawn to adventure seekers and story tellers. Those that can laugh. Seeing the creative output from all sorts of folks gets me stoked on exploring and developing my own capabilities. I'm always open to collaboration, whether riffing off an idea over coffee or really diving into a project as part of a larger multi-talented group.
