About Me

The Short Version

I’m a “creative professional” with a very strong background in technology. That basically means I make my clients look rad and can do lots of the nerdy work too. I have experience in video production, graphic design, illustration, motion graphics, web development, print production, augmented reality, etc. Pretty much all the stuff you need for your business I can do. I’ve worked with small start ups to international brands and understand the challenges companies face.

I moved from Salt Lake City to Clinton, Utah in 2019, but I was born and raised in the Pacific North West just outside of Portland, Oregon. Look forward to hearing from you and how we can work together to make the world a more awesome place to be!
