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 calligraphy education. I learned to love type and graphic design in high school under the wing of an exceptional teacher, earned a scholarship and college degree in design and advertising, and became a graphic designer, publication designer, and ad agency art director in Seattle by age nineteen. By my early twenties, I was writing and designing million-dollar advertising for local, national, and international clientele.
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 articulate the character of people through their brands. I design contemporary custom typefaces and retail fonts that stand the test of time.
