A designer delivering print and digital concepts. I believe design exists to serve a purpose and that it is beyond just establishing an emotional connection but also making life easier and more enjoyable by creating things that are understandable, usable and accessible.

I have a thirst for knowldege and a fondness for the academic side of design, where I aspire to inspire others with what design can bring about. I've recently taken an interest in computation in design and hope to further pursue that path down the road.

In my free time you can find me playing baseball, listening to records & reading, or baking bread & making pourover coffee.
