    who am i...

    portland, OR

Who likes to write about themselves? And for that matter who wants to listen to someone go on and on about how awesome they are? I mean sure I could tell you that I’m a kick-ass designer, who can rock a sketchpad like nobody’s business. And I could tell you that all of my wicked talents can’t be contained. But I won’t, instead I’ll just give you a quick run down of who I am. I’m a graphic designer who loves typography, sketching, web design, mobile/app design, print, toy making, and tacos. Ok, I really love tacos! I mean it borders on being an obsession. But enough about that…if you want to know more (all the technical stuff that is) then grab a cold one take a look at my resume.
