Some of the work I've done for Userlite, where I am Creative Director & Front-End Developer. I designed the logo and the overall branding guidelines for the company, assisted with designing and developing the current website (www.userlite.com), and all other current branded materials (pictured: business cards, sales presentation cover).

After visiting a business (in this case an automotive dealership) the customer receives an email (A) with a simple Yes or No survey asking if they had a pleasant experience. If they click "It was great!" they are directed to the positive landing (B) which in turn asks them to leave a review on a popular review site selected by a random number algorithm. If they selected "Could have been better" they are instead directed to a form that allows them to send private comments directly to the store.
These murals were created with a combination of vintage photography provided by the USS North Carolina Battleship Museum, era-appropriate branding elements provided by Pepsi, and original illustrated elements I created in Photoshop. I digitally composited all of the elements and had them printed on adhesive vinyl, which was then installed at the Museum. I also designed matching graphics for the Pepsi vending machines using their 1940's era logo.
Hillflint is an apparel company specializing in Ivy League fashions. I was approached by them to create illustrations that convey the features that make their Mark 1 sweater superior to other sweaters. All illustrations were created in Photoshop CC using a Wacom Intuos tablet.
This was a particularly fun project for Chrysler automotive dealerships. I hand illustrated the drawings and writing on the white-board using a Wacom Intuos tablet and Adobe Illustrator, composited the illustrations and the photo of the boy together in Photoshop, then added text & finished it up for printing in InDesign.

I'm an art director, designer, and illustrator based out of beautiful Hillsborough, NC. I'm passionate about a lot of things. Design? Sure thing. Illustration? Yes please. Front end development? Hey, why the heck not? I'm a firm believer in being well-rounded and constantly seeking out knowledge. It keeps me excited to do what I do. Always stay hungry and never think you know everything. That's when you get left behind.
I'm also the proud papa of the cutest little girl in the world, an occasional homebrewer, and an all-around nerd.
I'm an obsessive problem solver, whether it's code that doesn't want to do what it's told or a client that wants something that no one's heard of. I love getting completely stumped and working my way out the other side.
There is a "me" in team. Need someone to take point? I've managed teams. Need someone to get their hands dirty? I'm happy to do that too. I'm a team player, a self starter, and all points in between.
I'm a natural at adapting to new things. New software, new environments, new teammates, new clients, new skills, new workflows. I pride myself in adjusting on the fly and still keeping a cool head.
