I am a hard working creative who loves the outdoors. My career started in my home state of Wisconsin where I designed trade show booth graphics and corporate collateral for an agency in Milwaukee. Eventually I would make my way west to California for an opportunity to design apparel in San Diego where I fell in love with the Southern California weather and Tijuana tacos. After 8 years in California I decided to take a break from my desk job and spent half a year backpacking through Central America while working on my photography. Over the course of my creative career I have worn a variety of hats and consider myself a well rounded designer and photographer who loves a challenge. I take great pride in seeing my work travel from computer screen to production and am thrilled to see my photos featured in catalogs. Volunteering abroad has played an important role throughout my life, I am a current board member of New Beginnings – a Nonprofit operating out of Kenya and I donate my design and photography time to Nonprofits and NGOs often. When I am not working or even while I am working I enjoy camping, hiking, fishing and restoring vintage cars and motorcycles.
