Progression is endless.
Positive progression is a passion to make everyday better than the last, choosing to be a problem solver rather than a problem maker. We can sit, bitch, and put up walls or put that same energy into finding answers and making it happen. Driven by a perpetual desire to endlessly explore curiosity, filling a void, feeding a vice, inspiring and encouraging people through engaging and emotional experiences. Using proven procedures and thought processes to create innovative ideas, products, and brands through various design mediums.

Integrity above all.
I hold myself and my work the the highest of standards, and I'll always provide honest constructive feedback regardless of fault. I live on the edge, work really hard, play even harder, and create with thoughtfulness and purpose.

Collective collaborations, birthing inspiration and innovation.
Feel free to contact me anytime for full-time, freelance, contract branding or design work, drawing hangouts, street photography sessions, pick-up soccer games, outdoor adventures, or shredding Mt Hood.

Portland, Oregon is my home.
