I am a native Southern California boy and Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising Alumni. I first began my career in 2003 with Standford Personal Care, a small private label manufacturer specializing in the health and beauty industry. In 2006, I relocated to West LA to pursue my career in packaging and POP merchandising design.
I'm usually working on a broad range of projects for private clients while maintaining a senior design position at a local CPG company. Some of my most recent clients include: Fred Siegel, Love Reusable Bags, Nature Made, SOYJOY, Zenify, LARGE Music and Kirkland Signature.
Over the past couple of years, I have also contracted at a local design agency - Undefeated Creative. Located in the inspiring and newly renovated LA Arts District, there, I was able to work on various identity and branding projects for clients throughout the LA and local Southern California area; From packaging and advertising, to web design and point of purchase. The rapidly flourishing city was an inspiration for me and is the foundation of who I am today as a design fanatic and enthusiastic creative professional.
I am always interested in doing freelance work or collaborating with other creatives. Please take a look around. My site consists of contracted and freelance projects, personal photography and other creative experiments.
