After spending my formative years like any great child prodigy... in detention. I eventually came to discover my true calling in life. The joys of interpretive dance. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out.
But I endured. After graduating from the University of Delaware in 2006 with studies in graphic design, advertising, illustration and applied photography I decided it was time for an adventure. Something to stretch my brain; and my legs. So I packed a car with a few ambitions, clean socks, good music, and one very close friend, to help share 3 months, an armrest, and 15,000 miles worth of amazing sights, experiences, and connections.
Somehow after all that I've found myself here, in San Francisco, where I spend my time designing interesting things for an amazing collection of clients and friends. And in my free time camping, rock climbing, swing dancing, honing my skills at foosball, or sharing a home-brewed beer over a game of disc golf. All the while still searching for those little amazing moments in the day, and plotting that next great adventure.
