About me

I first moved to Japan from America as a teenager, with little more than an elementary level of Japanese. I survived by adapting to and learning from my environment. Over the years my travels have taken me across Europe and Asia. Through all of this, I have developed a passion for great design.

Great design surmounts any barriers of language or time. With technology, great design can bridge gaps of culture. Great design shapes great communication.

For the last two years, I have been working at the worlds largest architecture firm, Gensler. I have had the opportunity to work with some of the worlds biggest clients doing concept design, environmental
graphic design, branding, motion graphics, and video editing and photography. Working in this fast paced environment, I have learned to be flexible, and to always stay curious and to always be evolving. I pride myself on being able to work on multiple projects with tight deadlines, but always producing the best design possible.

Before Gensler, I was in the Japanese countryside to help revitalize and improve
the local area with through the power of design. Some notable projects include
re-branding a local artisanal sake, logo and branding for local food brands, and redesigning the official area map for tourists.
