I'm an art director, designer, and illustrator based out of beautiful Hillsborough, NC. I'm passionate about a lot of things. Design? Sure thing. Illustration? Yes please. Front end development? Hey, why the heck not? I'm a firm believer in being well-rounded and constantly seeking out knowledge. It keeps me excited to do what I do. Always stay hungry and never think you know everything. That's when you get left behind.
I'm also the proud papa of the cutest little girl in the world, an occasional homebrewer, and an all-around nerd.
I'm an obsessive problem solver, whether it's code that doesn't want to do what it's told or a client that wants something that no one's heard of. I love getting completely stumped and working my way out the other side.
There is a "me" in team. Need someone to take point? I've managed teams. Need someone to get their hands dirty? I'm happy to do that too. I'm a team player, a self starter, and all points in between.
I'm a natural at adapting to new things. New software, new environments, new teammates, new clients, new skills, new workflows. I pride myself in adjusting on the fly and still keeping a cool head.
