FOR WORK  I'm a partner at MAKE & CO., an artful creative company that specializes in creative direction, identity design, branding and all aspects of printed matter. We enjoy making ideas come to life, making work that blows your mind, making a mess and making friendships along the way.

FOR PLAY  I started Athlete Objects, which quite simply is; athletes drawn as objects based on their name or nickname, my childhood memories and any other interesting Internet tidbits. From famous to infamous, amazing or obscure, these character illustrations are part fact and part poking fun.
