I feel privileged to be involved with a lot of creative projects — some I own fully, others I collaborate with some really inspiring people on.

City On Fire

I founded City On Fire, a boutique print and interactive design studio specializing in projects for the film and media industry, educational platforms and media channels, entrepreneurs and startups, creative and arts organizations, and non-profits. I and my coding partner take on selected projects.

Arcos Films

I'm the Multimedia Producer at Arcos Films, a studio focused on documentary work about societal issues. Our projects include the Switch Energy Project, an award-winning feature-film, video library, and educational portal focusing on global energy issues and the Mental Health Channel, an award-winning online video channel with a diverse slate of documentary shows dedicated to mental health topics, syndicated nationally on PBS.


I'm the creative director and strategic consultant at Tugg, Inc., a company featured in major film and tech press as a revolutionary crowdsourced theatrical film distribution and licensing platform that has brought thousands of film events across the US, Canada, and Australia.

Director Terrence Malick

I'm happy to be designing for and doing creative consulting for legendary director Terrence Malick who has said I have "an absolutely brilliant graphic sense". Coming from him, I'm completely humbled.

Live A Great Story

I'm involved with the inspirational brand Live A Great Story as lead designer and strategist to expand the rapidly growing brand.

Broad Green

I was the Director of Design at Broad Green, a new era movie production and distribution studio based in Los Angeles that prides itself on providing artists with the space and resources to create their best work. Broad Green films are regularly honored at the major global film festivals and also reach mass audiences through wide theatrical release.


I've joined the Maptia team in early 2014 to help develop what we're calling "the most beautiful way to tell stories about places around the world."
Join us at Maptia.

Rising Tide Project

Rising Tide is a video, web, and works project to help educate and empower women in the developing world because they have a major impact on improving life in the world's poorest countries.

Indierect Records

Indierect is record label and music management service focused on Austin bands. Though it's now on hiatus, it enabled me to work with lots of great musicians, event promoters, and press.

Guest Lectures

I value everyone that has impacted my education over the years and I enjoy giving back through guest lectures on media, design, and photography at universities as well as conferences.
