Graphic artist and multi-media maker, based in Northern California. I work internationally with artists, musicians, and creatively-minded people on record album art, website design, photography, interactive media / art installation, product design, audio and video production, and rather a lot of other things as well. My record label, BEEHIVE, can be found over here. Analog yin to the digital yang comes from wandering outdoors, blacksmithing, radio broadcasting, farming on our fourth-generation family fruit ranch.
My approach to my work — be it design, filmmaking, sound, etc — is that of a creative problem-solver and collaborator. Simply put, I make ideas into things. You bring the vision, I’ll make it happen.
