I am a freelance designer, artist, photographer, craftsman, teacher, painter, and creator always seeking new opportunities. With over 17 years of experience in various fields of art, design, and entertainment, I am currently teaching scenic design and scenic painting at The University of Utah, and have been working on projects ranging from commercial logo design to the Olympics since receiving my Masters Degree in design from UC San Diego in 2009. I am skilled in both the artistic, practical, and production sides of design, and maintain a versatile set of skills that can be adapted to a wide variety of projects.
