I have been interested in art all of my life. I can't really describe the way I feel about it, It's just kind of a feeling; As I'm sure it is for most of you. Every day brings new challenges to designers. We need to solve complex problems with image, color, text, and layout. The future looks bright, and I just can't wait to make it look cool!

Work History

    • Creative Apparel Concepts
    • Minneapolis, MN
    • Mar 2011 - Present (3 years 7 months)

    In it’s 11 years in business, CAC has become a one stop shop for nearly all of your apparel needs. I gladly spent my first year as a production artist separating art files for Walmart’s collegiate program, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, CAC’s own Sleepwear brand Munki Munki and many others. Learning the production side of apparel was key when making the shift to designing in early 2012. I am proud to say that my designs are thoughtful, highly artistic and sample ready. Along with designing for all of CAC’s vast client base I have had the privilege of creating art for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s inductee brand (debuting at Magic 2013) and played a major role in the concept, design, production and launch of CAC’s quirky house brand Faux Real.

    • Spartan Promotional Group
    • Oakdale, MN
    • Sep 2008 - Mar 2011 (2 years 6 months)

    Spartan is nationally recognized in the field of corporate and private promotions. My vast duties included, client consult, art concept and design, art proofing and pre-press quality checks. I updated and maintained a large catalog of digital files assuring nationally known clients that their public identity is safe in my hands. Spartans production facility boasted both a screen print and embroidery department and it is in there that my passion for designing for apparel began. I learned the value and art of a one color scree print and that embroidery can be cool as well.
