Note: I am currently pursuing positions with a remote team or onsite in the Olympia, WA or Portland, OR areas.


I take complex, abstract and new ideas and create stories, interactions, and visuals that are educational, enlightening and delightful.

Others may say I'm an illustrator, a painter, a web designer, an animator, an 'idea guy', or something else entirely. Its true, I've been trained in and absolutely love visual arts. However, I'm a storyteller at heart. All of these things orbit around including your audience in the story. My story. Their story. Your story. I believe that stories are the best way to:

- Impart understanding.
- Share mindset.
- Teach mental models.
- Convey value.
- Reveal motivation.
- Create bonds.


My life is full to the brim with communication discovery; visual storytelling through interface design, illustration, animation, and motion design; audio communication via podcasting and public speaking; even some writing and photography. I love to find the “why” in something and then explore the best ways to share it.

I have a deep history of working with both local and remote agile teams, as well as solo design projects. Open to all opportunities crafting modern, elegant interfaces for outstanding audience experiences.
