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, to make everyday better than the last.

Integrity above all.
I have no problem owning my faults, 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.

 

 

Sup!
I'm a chicken & waffle loving, green tea drinking multidisciplinary brand designer, innovator, and giant thinker. Growing up as a curiously crafty, highly motivated, and overly ambitious child with bright blue hair playing in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains. I played soccer and piano, took ballet and tap dance lessons, made my own halloween costumes, studied kung-fu and architecture, started a clothing company, got my city a skatepark, taught people of all ages how to snowboard, made skateboard video's, attended art school, moved to New York City, started businesses, made a stack of cash, lost it all with one bad decision, reevaluated my life's purpose, received solid advice, and followed my passion by moving to Oregon to live and lead my progressive lifestyle with good people who aren't afraid of breaking the status-quos.

I'm super stoked to call Oregon my home and I'm ready to help push the limits of thoughtful innovation and design.

P.S.
Some people may find me a little quirky…I’m ridiculously motivated, kind of a nerd, I geeking out on technicalities, I collect vinyl toys and Swatch watches, and I'm a relentlessly determined problem solver that never gives up. WILD ideas and good times! Peace…I'm out, rock out, over and out.
