Thank you for checking out my website!
I'm an artist and designer based in Portland, OR. I am originally from Bloomington, MN, where I grew up in a house with my mom (biochemist and artist), dad (photographer), and brother (computer scientist). Along with my wife (art history major and naturopathic medical student), I was exposed to a wide variety of art and design from a young age.
I attended the University of Minnesota studying Graphic Design. Throughout college I worked at several shoe stores and also custom painted shoes on the side. After graduating from the U, I attended a course at the Pensole Footwear Design Academy, where I was connected with a recruiter at adidas.
Shortly after to moving to Portland in September of 2015 I landed a dream job in Color and Material Design at adidas. I have had the opportunity to design football cleats for some of the best athletes in the world.
Oh yeah. Just like sneakers, I have always loved superheroes. Watching the first Spider-Man is one of my first and fondest memories of superheroes. Once the Marvel Cinematic Universe came around, I was hooked into the movies, which brought me to the tv shows, which brought me to the source material: the comics. Some of my favorite characters include Miles Morales as Spider-Man, the Champions, and Captain Marvel.
Inspired after attending my first Comic Con in 2017, I started exploring comic-related artwork. I love to blend my appreciation for streetwear and superheroes, creating unique hand-crafted toys, masks, and more.
