PROFILE

I'm a multidisciplinary designer currently residing in San Francisco. I recently created Make the Logo Bigger. When I'm not working, I'm either being a dad, surfing or playing pinball. I have 10+ years design experience across digital and traditional media, and have worked professionally in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, and Philadelphia.
