I was born and raised in Minnesota, but spent 12 years living at the foot of the Rocky Mountains in Fort Collins, Colo., where I earned my B.F.A. in Graphic Design from Colorado State University. During my time in Fort Collins, I honed my skills in an agency setting at Lightsource Creative Communications, Inc. Since returning to Minnesota in 2004, I’ve been helping businesses build brands through my independent consultancy. I also spent some time providing lead design & creative direction for Fairview Health Services and University of Minnesota Health.
Art and Design have always been a big part of my life. Some of my earliest memories are tagging along with my Mom at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, and wandering around while she gave tours. I spent my childhood drawing and tracing artwork I admired, and eventually trading a few of my masterpieces to my classmates for gum and candy. I never really had a choice in careers, design chose me at an early age.
I currently live in Burnsville, Minn., with my wife, 3 children, my cat “Cole” and dog “Neko.” I enjoy playing hockey (GO NIGHTHAWKS!), attending my son’s hockey games (GO EAGLES!), hiking and mountain biking.
