I was born in Portland, Oregon and have lived in the Pacific Northwest most of my life. My father introduced me to hand-lettered calligraphy at age eight, and I later gained a formal education in it in school. I learned to love type and graphic design in high school under the wing of an exceptional teacher, earned a college degree in design and advertising, and became a graphic designer, publication designer, and ad agency art director in Seattle by age nineteen. I was writing and designing million-dollar advertising for local, national, and international clientele in my early twenties.
Type has always been a key component in my designs. As my career evolved into brand development, I was intrinsically drawn to type design, for type has a unique ability to connect the character of people and brands.
