*or GREY, for our pals across the pond.
I graduated with a DesignDegree™ in 2010, entrenching myself in the unforgiving, combative profession of graphic design. I sailed through the rough waters of economic downturn, surviving on a diet of ramen noodles and Pabst Blue Ribbon. As the seas calmed, my independent design studio carved out a niche working with artists, individuals, small businesses and community organizations. I specialize in branding and identity development, illustration, and publication design. I am also available for freelance art direction. I now survive on prime rib and champagne. Whether your goal is simply to exist, or to take over the world—let's make beautiful things together.
I live and work in Pittsburgh's Brighton Heights neighborhood with my wife and questionably-loyal dog. Outside of work, I can be found watching professional ice hockey, or cycling the great state of Pennsylvania.
