B I O

I live with my wife and two cats, painting, drawing, and photographing people, places and things that inspire me.

I find inspiration in random, everyday occurrences – numbers on the side of a rusty truck, peeling paint on a crumbling building or torn layers of old murals on a billboard (beauty and inspiration in the rubble).

I'm a graphic designer-turned-abstract painter. I graduated from Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, with a degree

in Illustration and Design and spent nearly 20 years designing logos, marketing collateral, rock posters, and websites

for agencies and clients like Nike and Death Cab for Cutie. I was a cofounder of The New York Times recommended

design store / art gallery called OFFICE, in Portland OR.​

I typically work in mixed media, acrylic, graphite, pastels and ephemera. Numbers and letters are omnipresent in my work,

as they are in everyday life.​​ If you'd like more information about my work, please fill out the form on my contact page.
