I have over two decades of professional experience in visual communications. Besides design work, from time to time I produce illustrations under the brand of Inkleaf Studio and fonts as Midwest Type.
I grew up in a small town south of Cleveland on a state-owned farm surrounded by experimental field plots. I later worked as a research assistant for The Ohio State University at an agricultural facility before starting my career in graphic design. Today I live in Akron, Ohio, with my wife Chelsea,
our chinchilla Sasparilla (R.I.P. little buddy—17.5 years!), and our dog Penny. When not in the studio, I’m most likely working on an outdoor project.
I have a background in design, illustration, and fine art. I will take on the occasional freelance project, so if you have something cool in mind, please get in touch.
