Currently I’m a Videographer/Photographer/Graphic Designer for UFC Gym.
I love the creative process: Asking questions, figuring out the actual goal/desired outcome, and forming an action plan to achieve that goal. I know I don’t know it all and am constantly trying to learn from everyone I meet.
While I love and appreciate art for arts sake, I don’t consider myself an artist, but more of a visual problem solver. Does the photo properly communicate and express the brand? Is the type readable? You give me a novel’s length of ad copy, and I figure out how to not just make it look good, but make sure the key aspects stand out and the message is crystal clear.
I love Jesus, Katie – my wife, Elliot – my son, good drink (Beer, Whiskey, Coffee, Wine, Gatorade, Tea…I enjoy almost all beverages), good food (Burgers & pasta in particular), traveling, camping, art, tattoos, and the Los Angeles Clippers (Since the Elton Brand days, and still have my kid’s size jersey from junior high to prove it.) All while trying not take myself too seriously and have a little fun.
I also love volunteering at my church, Cross of Christ, where I handle Art Direction and lead the Communications Team.
