Hello! And welcome to my personal graphic design portfolio website. Here is a little about me information if you are interested.
If not, get straight to the work!
However you managed to stumble upon me from the bowels of the interwebz, I encourage you to give a look-see to what I do. I am a web designer/developer currently living in Nashville, TN; recently graduated from Middle Tennessee State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts (with a concentration on Graphic Design of course). I worked as a general jack-of-many-trades designer at a full service ad agency called Locomotion Creative until April of this 2014. I landed there straight out of Academia and had great opportunities to build many skills. I was able to work with an amazing team on logos, branding, ad campaigns, motion graphics, web design, and even a small smidgeon of web development. At the end of September 2014 I graduated from the Nashville Software School. After attending I gained all kinds of web development skills to build upon my graphic design background. I learned a multitude of development skills and technologies including:
- Node.js / Express
- Ruby on Rails
- Object Oriented Programming
- Test Driven Development
- CSS Frameworks, Foundation / Bootstrap
- Git Version Control
Here are some more skills:

My free time, when it manages to emerge consists of: drawing, music indulgery, cinema ogling, and even a bit of percussion enthusiasm (drum-tastic). I am always trying to keep up with the industry and build my skills. Coming out of school I have found a real fascination for motion graphics and web design. Web development has caused editors like Sublime Text and Atom to become my go-to apps, But I haven’t forgotten about the rest of the Adobe Suite. Everyone says it but I always enjoy a good logo and even editorial design can be stragely satisfying. Did you know that I am an AWARD WINNING graphic designer?

I am eager to work with you to solve your problems of the visual communication nature. Give me a shout. On a further topic, I am partnering with a photography wunderkind named Cody Hoosier to start a blog aimed towards delivering practical photography skills to designers who want to add some beautiful photos to their repertoire of capabilities. Keep an eye out for it. If you have any connection with me I will probably be plugging it and spreading the word. If we aren’t yet acquainted and you are interested in seeing the birth of Photoclasm, just send me an email and I’ll happily notify you of the launch day. If you read all these words, congratulations! It may have been an arduous path but for your efforts, here is a trendy funny video.
