  • About Me

    As a passionate and driven leader, I believe a genuine care for people is not only the most noble posture for a creative, it’s also the most effective. In the past 10 years, I held numerous in-house roles on creative teams, freelanced as a designer, and toured as a songwriter and guitarist, but a humble approach to the creative process has been a constant. By prioritizing the latest trends and the client’s vision over personal taste and always remaining hungry to learn, I have been fortunate to stay relevant through an array of industries.

    I built my diverse skillset through the eight years I spent working my way up from intern to creative director at one of the largest churches in the greater Seattle area. Through this experience, I’ve developed the ability to make quick decisions, execute well under pressure, communicate effectively with both left- and right-brain thinkers, and (perhaps most importantly) keep team morale high.
