Hello,

I’m a Salt Lake City based Illustrator with a background in art direction. In the most general sense I create organized commotion. It’s a style born of my bossy imagination bullying my inner minimalist. Whether I’m creating a digital mural or just riffing on a personal project, I typically burden the composition until it strikes a visual balance between a lot of things and a ton of stuff. I’m an 80’s kid but stake no claim to the Retrowave movement. I’m a descendant of the Hanna-Barbara / Chuck Jones lineage and it should therefore come as no surprise that my style is straight up cartoons. I’ve been fortunate to work with some great brands throughout my career including Google, Nickelodeon, Adobe, Jack in the Box, Activision, Discovery Channel and Cotopaxi. (Where you at Nike?)
