Experience

Summary

I’ve been playing in Photoshop since middle school & (more formally) received a BFA in Graphic Design in 2006. Fate brought me to Austin after college, and love of independence took me into freelancing. I've been an independent designer for 10+ years.

Work history

Austonian Spirits Branding
Austonian Spirits was born from the idea that you can create a good, quality whiskey without the traditional burden on oak forests for barrels. We developed a logo, brand guidelines, label set for their first whiskey, and a launch website for them.
Cuisine of Texas Magazine
Magazine layout for the Cuisine of Texas city dining guides in Austin, San Antonio & Dallas. Including cover design, some ad design, map layout, menu page layouts, recipe page layouts, and index layouts.

What I read

Books, online articles and blogs.

Side projects

I have a side shop for my screenprinting work, and a personal blog for food & books.

Ideal team

I prefer to have one designated point of contact, and for them to provide the details/file/feedback I need but to otherwise let me do the job they hired me for. I value clients who value good design. Cheapskates & mircomanagers not a good fit.
