TLDR // Draws pictures - among other things...
Jan 2014 – Present
I am a designer and illustrator, and love being both. I partner with people that are passionate about their product or brand and have a desire to create something special together. Whether it's web design or icon development I approach every project with a brand forward focus and aim to create truly unique and impactful work.
