Illustrator & Designer
I’m a freelance designer and illustrator living and working in the burbs of Chicago. My work has been featured on Mashable, BuzzFeed, The Land of Nod, Design Taxi, Brain Pickings, The ABC Television Network, and many others. I run a small home studio where I design digital user expereinces, and create clever art, along with a few other swell goodies. I operate by a simple code, “If it’s not beautiful or useful, than it’s not worth it”. I’m creative by nature but it makes me feel better to say that it’s by choice.
On a more personal note, I’m the father of four crazy little kids. They are the foundation of my imagination and the muse for my creativity. They keep me silly and remind me to play because it’s the best way to learn. I enjoy spending long hours staring at color pallets; finding new ways to misuse semi-colons; and Rick Rolling my friends like it’s still 2007. I also like less nerdy stuff like, existentialism, quantum physics, infinity, the number zero, and a comfortable arm chair with good ass bologna. You know, where your ass sits below you knees. Yes, these are all things that are good. Mmmmm…
