Advice in Graphic Design, Web Development, Professional Development
I live in Denver, CO where I am a Graphic Designer & Web Programmer for Turner Public Relations. I've worked on behalf of some of the most high profile brands in the world including Merrell®, Otterbox®, Incase®, K•SWISS®, REI®, Levi's®, New Era Cap®, Airwalk®, Obermeyer®, Filson®, Cushe®, Palladium®, Above The Rim®, Skis.com, Travaasa® Experiential Resorts, Park Hyatt Beaver Creek®, The Brown Palace Hotel & Spa®.
I attended undergrad at Hope College where I received a B.A. in Religion. Amidst my stints in Los Angeles, Santa Cruz, and Ft. Collins, I spent time hiking much of the Appalachian Trail and motorcycling the continent of South America. In 2009 I moved to Chicago to study Digital Film and Video Production at the Illinois Institute of Art. Over the years, I have developed a diverse background in the creative arts/communications with experience in writing, photography, video/audio editing, graphic design, web design, web development and digital media.
When not behind my computer, I am typically tucked away somewhere in the Rocky Mountains backpacking, snowboarding or climbing with my wife and our dogs Kona and Maeby. I follow the adventure and sometimes when I'm lucky, the adventure follows me.
