I'm on Twitter. Again.

Yup, deleted my account, but then started it back up afresh. Because.

Outside of design I have some enthusiasms.

As a competitive shooter, I collect, modify, and train with a variety of firearms. As a bonsai artist, I cultivate, refine, and redesign specimens in my collection. And take a photo from time to time…


My Promise:

I maintain, uphold, and adhere to the highest uncompromising standards of professionalism and integrity, as defined in the Academy of Design Professionals' Code of Professional Conduct.

Thank you, sincerely, but I am not interested in any side projects or design opportunities.
