About Me & MY PROCESS

I draw inspiration from all around me. The pull on my soul from the outdoors and the connection with nature affect me on many levels. I am a visual story teller; capturing captivating moments through photographs, drawings, paintings, sculptures, and illustrations. I'm an asker of questions, a getter of information, a sketcher of ideas, and a tinkerer of processes. I am a very curious individual who's passionate about beautiful design.
I understand that "design" isn't just a pretty logo or a balanced composition—is about problem solving and most design happens outside of photoshop and illustrator. I am a craftsman and pay strong attention to detail. My personal mantra is 'bring it on' and I love the kind of design challenges that make most minds hurt. I cast my ego aside as I understand the best ideas come from a team. 
MY CREATIVE PROCESS
Like many creative professionals, the cleverest ideas frequent my thought space during the most inopportune times; while I'm falling asleep, during morning showers, as I'm traversing the landscapes, even when perusing the perimeter of the grocery store. There's no telling when an idea—or solution to a challenge—will present its self or in what form. However, to get from start to finish in any creative project, all creative projects are subject of the below creative process—starting with a question and ending with a happy dance.  
1 | PREPARATION
QUESTION / IDEATE / PLAN / STRATEGIZE
Together we draft a plan of attack in the form of a proposal
and creative brief; setting milestones along the way.  
2 | INCUBATION
SKETCH / EXPLORE / EXPIREMENT / TINKER
Thought processes start cranking and creative juices
begin to flow as I stir on ways to bring the creative brief to life. 
3 | ILLUMINATION
EXPAND / ITERATE / REFINE / FINE-TUNE
We revisit the plan of attack and expand on successful
components; realigning iterations towards the final product.
4 | IMPLEMENTATION
POLISH / SHINE / DELIVER / DANCE
Final touches are applied and last minute details are implemented.
Once happiness has been achieved, we celebrate with a happy dance.
AVAILABLE FOR HIRE
I am currently available for creative opportunities—part-time or full-time. I work primarily out of my home office in Bonney Lake, Washington. I often travel to Tacoma and Seattle to work out of various coffee shops, conduct interviews, client meet & greets, and in-person creative pow-wows. I have had success with clients from out of state and am open to working onsite or offsite.
