Before design my career had me wrenching at a local bike shop. When I want to detach from the world, you can find me bikepacking across the nearby mountain ranges or dodging cars downtown on my daily commute.
My love for design was born from my desire to become a fine artist. While I don’t need to get the brushes out to do my day job, you can still find me dabbling in oil paints and watercolors on the side.

From an early age I grew up playing hockey, it was the only way to stay cool in the heart of Texas. I love all things hockey and continue to play in adult leagues in the Seattle area.
