Beautiful and strategic brands
built
for the humans behind them


As in most of life, if the humans behind a mission, problem, or conversation are ignored, there will be little-to-no authenticity in the end. This is especially true in branding. If we miss the humans behind the brands, we will fail to communicate the relevant truth in a visual form.



I’ve been focused on creating visual identities for the past decade, and truly approach the task with a “for love of the game” attitude. I believe in a context-based strategy, where each project is approached not with style or trend, but a unique answer to the unique set of circumstances. 

Working with either global corporations or the coffee shop a few blocks from where I sit typing this, I see the projects similar—People who need their best ideas communicated. I take pride in the task of forming relationships with those I work with in order to create intelligent, beautiful, and enduring work.

Previously, I ran 2 studios: Foundry Collective in Dallas, and Studio Mast in Denver, before joining Champions Design (formerly OCD) in NYC as Design Director. I’m now Design Director at Switch, leading the OKC office. 

I’m also a part owner and brand manager of MiddleState Coffee in Denver, CO.
