I began my career in graphic design while studying Marketing at UNCW’s Cameron School of Business. Since graduating in 2009, I have continued to work with both corporate and music industry clients.
In 2015, I expanded my offerings to include screen printed concert posters and art prints. In my tenure as a poster artist, I have held the honor of winning multiple Expressobeans awards, selling out my prints at dozens of events and national art shows, and generating upwards of $9,000 in charitable contributions to non-profit organizations thus far.
I consider myself to be fluent in both corporate and music industry branding. I enjoy allowing concepts and aspects of both industries overlap in terms of theory, style, and approach whenever applicable.
Regardless of where you land on that spectrum, I have the resources at my fingertips to suit your needs.
When you're ready, contact me and we can work together to bring your vision to reality.
