In 2018, after taking some time to explore all of the great options that Seattle has to offer hungry creatives, I accepted a full time role as Art Director at Nuun Hydration. Previous to my hiring, Nuun had not had an art director, or any higher level creative leadership beyond the role.
Since starting, I have doubled the size of my team, and overhauled the entirety of the Nuun brand identity. With a ton of exciting projects under my belt so far, and a future of challenging but rewarding work ahead, I’m incredibly excited for the future of life in the Nuuniverse.
I moved to Seattle in 2015 and spent a couple years in the agency world, as well as working on some incredible freelance projects for some great folks in town and abroad.
In 2017, my partner, pup, and I left town for an extended road trip, freelancing as we went and returning the next year. It was an amazing experience we’re forever grateful for.
In 2012, I co-founded Band, a Portland design and branding studio, con mi amigo Zach with the hopes of cutting our teeth as a full-service creative agency. After five years, countless contract gigs, and a portfolio full of work later, I am incredibly proud of all of the projects we hustled and aced.
In 2011, I started volunteering at ADX, Portland’s premier Makerspace. I quickly fell in love with their DIY ethics and progressive presence in the creative community.
I began trading marketing, design, and web work for a shop membership until my contributions were so great that their team realized they needed my help full time. In 2013, I accepted a role as their first creative director.
When I was 17, I started a small online ‘business’ selling art and designs to punk bands and their record labels. I called myself Get Wise Media, and the various shirt designs, album covers, fliers and more helped lay the groundwork for all the work I’d do in the future.
