An artist and graphic designer based in northern Michigan.
I am a versatile designer with a genuine love for the act of creation. I've been lucky to work with all sorts of different clients throughout my career, completing a broad spectrum of different marketing tasks requiring me to be resourceful. It has been the best kind of education. I've accumulated a lot of skills and experience, including the ability to listen well and continue learning.
My passion for drawing has remained intact throughout my career and makes its way into my design projects, especially logo designs, packaging and other brand materials. I'm comfortable working on various styles of vector images, digital painting, comics-style artwork, plus photo editing and all the technical stuff involved in making sure that images reproduce well in any given medium. I've created illustrations for websites, blogs, wine labels, event posters, logos, magazine articles and package designs.
I began working with Right Brain Brewery on their label and packaging design in 2015. It reinvigorated my love of drawing. Since then I've launched an Etsy Store called Hey Old Goat (My wife Emily affectionately nicknamed me "Old Goat" early in our marriage.) The Store features items (art prints, shirts, phone cases, etc.) bearing my artwork and is 100% a labor of love. Please check out Hey Old Goat
I have good written and verbal communication skills. I'm honest and affable. I love coming up with ideas to surprise an audience in the right way. I make decent Dad Jokes and bad puns. I have no problem answering a question with I don't know. Let me figure it out.
Let's talk about your project. I am available for freelance or contract work. Email me at email@example.com to start that conversation.
I am also available for web projects through Bright Bridge Studios.
Thank you kindly for your interest in my work. :)
