I am a West Coast native, spending time between SF, Seattle and Portland, with my wife and two cats, painting, drawing, and photographing people, places and things that inspire me. I find inspiration in random, everyday occurrences – numbers on the side of a rusty truck, peeling paint on a crumbling building or torn layers of old murals on a billboard (beauty and inspiration in the rubble).
I'm a graphic designer-turned-abstract painter. I graduated from Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, with a degree in illustration and spent nearly 20 years designing logos, marketing collateral, rock posters, and websites for agencies and clients like Nike and Death Cab for Cutie. I was a cofounder of The New York Times recommended design store / art gallery called OFFICE, in Portland OR. I typically work in mixed media, acrylic, graphite, pastels and ephemera. Numbers and letters are omnipresent in my work, as they are in everyday life.
In my spare time, find me in my San Francisco studio.
