I'm a designer who strives for the best and doesn’t miss a chance to have fun! I love all aspects of design, but I especially enjoy projects involving advertising and social media. A lot of my motivation and inspiration comes from the people around me and objects in my environment. Each and every opportunity I'm given to design is exciting and considered a positive challenge for me to learn as much as I can.
I graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design from California State University, Long Beach in 2012. I currently live in Long Beach, Ca. where I work as an Art Director for the digital advertising company TVGla.
I'm happily married to my beautiful wife Tracy, and just last year we welcomed our first child, Owen, into the world. Although I don’t seem to have enough of it, in my free time I enjoy grocery shopping (weird, right?), scrolling through Reddit, and helping my wife out on photo shoots. I also love to travel, although I don’t get to do it nearly enough.
If I'm not designing, you can usually find me walking my dog Kona, trying my best to sleep in, or watching the same few movies over and over again on Netflix.
Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign etc. I know my way around the suite.
From creating custom content to engaging social media posts, After Effects & Premiere are an ever improving skill of mine.
I know my way around basic web coding, and can usually figure out whats going on. For what I can’t, theres always Google!
I’m proficient in the MS Office suite on both Mac and PCs.
Strong interpersonal skills, and the ability to clearly communicate those ideas both to my team and the client.
Organized, adaptable and detail oriented. You can trust me to get the job done right and on time.
I may cry a lot, but it's because I love you
Owen is Tracy's and my first child, and is currently a drooling, smiling, 18lb bundle of joy. He keeps us busy all day every day and is worth every second. Current hobbies: sleeping, eating, and learning to stand.
Super adorable but gets way too excited for his own good
Originally named "Chimichanga", Kona was born in Tijuana, Mexico in November 2014. He goes crazy for walks, cuddles, and the occasional ice cream treat from his momma. He also enjoys destroying stuffed sloths, and chasing squirrels.
