I graduated from Northern Illinois University in 2008 with a B.F.A. in Visual Communications. During my 13 years in the design field, I've had the privilege to have worked and learned from Studio North, Hans Design, Moira & Company, Aon Hewitt, Quill.com, and Merge Design + Interactive. Finally, I found a creative home at Zeller Marketing & Design.
I'm inspired by modernist graphic design and illustration, antique emblems and logos, Disney, Americana, Paul Rand, Ivan Chermayeff, Michael Beirut, editorial design, motion design, patterns, collages, textures, and much more. I love to learn, experiment and keep up with the latest design, web and email development, and SEO trends. Right now, I'm focused on advancing my motion design skills.
I live in Huntley, Illinois with my wife, two daughters and a floppy-eared beagle. In my free time, I enjoy listening and learning about old-time country, blues and jazz music from the 1920s and 1930s, picking five-string banjo, running, and having fun with my family. All love and respect for everyone.
