Freelance Designer and Builder
Raised amongst the woodlands of the Midwest but now living under the city lights, I'm a designer with gumption, a love for Seinfeld, and a constant desire to learn new things. My passion for working with my hands has taken me from being a mechanic to screen printer to experiential designer and builder. I can change a flat bicycle tube in less than five minutes, create an extravagant meal out of the contents of anyone's fridge, and construct furniture from pieces found on your street corner or local hardware store. It is truly nice to meet you. Hope you see something that excites you!
