Pittsburgh-bred and Buffalo-fed; I can't pinpoint the exact moment in time when I first heard the term "graphic designer." But I soon learned that the field of design was where I wanted to be. Fast forward through several gallons of coffee and a formal education in swiss design, I began what would be over 5 years with an apparel and marketing team, cutting my teeth on everything from professional athletics to mom and pop shops. A few short years had me taking over art direction and rebranding the very company I worked for. 2015 I packed my Jeep and drove from New York to Las Vegas to work as part of the marketing team for entrepreneur Chuck Brennan. It was here that I would do more in 6 months than in the last 5 years of my professional life. I opened "The Disneyland of the midwest." Badlands Pawn had me dealing with Rock Stars, writing commercials, designing logos, and flying to South Dakota to work 20 hour days to open what people said couldn't be done.I also maintain a steady freelance schedule in my spare time. I am currently a hat designer for New Era Cap Co.
