  • Background

    I’ve had a passion for art and design from a very young age. After graduating from the James Madison design program in 2000, I got my first professional design job at HZDG – on the steps of the Corcoran School of Art. I’ve gained a lot of experience over the years in identity design and branding. D.C. has been an awesome place to live and work.
