I've been a visual designer (of just about every flavor) for 16 years. The fascination continues to grow; I love the science behind the aesthetics, the philosophy behind the branding and strategies, the subtle challenges of intent and interpretation, and the research involved in understanding the messenger and recipient. My favorite visual problems are with branding and identities, marketing strategies, illustrations, logos, data vis, magazines, environmental design, packaging, product photoshoots, catalogs and look-books, apps, and websites. And I really, really, really love velvety paper.

When I'm not in front of a computer you can usually find me far up a mountain or a pitch of rock; even better if combined with foraging and/or travel. I am a cochair for a mountaineering course with the Washington Alpine Club and it is a true labor of love. (Climbing eyecandy on my Medium and Instagram.)
