I like to draw pictures. Occasionally, people pay me to do it. Here’s a not-so-well kept secret: I still do it even if nobody pays me.
I love seeing things from unique angles and coming up with artful solutions that resonate with people, helping them to grasp concepts and stories.
Years spent in bands, hosting radio shows & podcasts, shooting and editing pictures & video can’t all have been in vain, right?
In my capacity at the Swanson Family of Companies, I work with sales & marketing teams from companies across a broad spectrum of industries to develop on and offline marketing materials that speak to and help shape their brands including logo design, print collateral, trade show booth graphics, PowerPoint presentations and brand & campaign websites.
At Ceive, a design firm I co-founded, I was involved with every aspect of the design process, working on projects for local, regional and national brands to develop identity packages, websites, and print collateral.
As the Director of Communications at Grace Bible Church, I oversaw all public communications of a congregation of 1000, developing a comprehensive brand to gather in disparate threads of communication, both on and offline.
Began as a production artist, iterating other designers’ work and building sites in HTML, soon expanding my role to include brand development, illustration and website design.
