I was born in 1973 and grew up riding bmx bikes, skateboards, spray painting walls and getting into a normal, expected amount of trouble. As a military brat, I moved around a lot, it made sense that I later traveled the country many times over playing in bands. Time was spent in Richmond Virginia for fine art school at VCU and I graduated from the Art Institute of Philadelphia near the top of my class. I have been an Art Director more times than can be counted on one hand, less than two hands (including both The Willamette Week and The Stranger newspapers). I have designed hundreds of CD/record covers, posters and t-shirts for musical groups around the globe. After being the Art Director at Southern Lord Records for a few years in LA, I packed up and came back to my home: Portland, Oregon, Northwest America.
