I work on creative projects ranging from design to video production.
Based in sunny Southwest Florida.
"If you can design one thing, you can design anything." -Massimo Vignelli
Design is one. The fundamentals of design are the building blocks of our world. If you can apply them to the design of a book, you can apply them to the design of a building, chair, or brand. Through these disparate experiences, you're able to deepen your understanding of what good design can do and, thus, strengthen the effectiveness of your designs.
A hypothetical case study using the city of St. Petersburg, FL as a client.
The business need: Provide the visual identity for the city of St. Petersburg, Florida's new "Create in St. Pete" campaign. The campaign is designed to attract more young professionals to live and work in the city.
The solution: I created a series of fun, colorful, and bold visuals which convey the energy of the fast growing city. The visual motif was then applied to out-of-home banners and posters, merchandise, and other printed/digital collateral.
A hypothetical case study using Castle Beach Club Miami Beach as a client.
The business need: Design a new visual identity for the Castle Beach Club in Miami Beach, Florida. The Castle Beach Club is a luxury condominium complex.
The solution: My design solution creates an image that is at once expected, as in the Miami Beach inspired pastel color palette, as well as unexpected. The design is unique in that it subtly resembles a castle wall, which is fun and logical. The various colors provide versatility in application, physically or digitally.
A "modern-tropical" logo for my studio. The design achieves two primary objectives: 1) The color palette conveys an unconventional approach and 2) The simple typeface creates an elegant visual.
Logo designs for digital and physical branding collateral.
Video Production & Motion Graphics
Production & editing of videos which capture and showcase the beauty of Southwest Florida (and beyond). Visit my YouTube channel to access the entire series. My goal is to give people a first-person view of Florida cities and encourage more people to come visit us!
Alt (2023 short film)
Alt is a short narrative film directed by myself and written by my brother. A sci-fi thriller produced on a shoe-string budget, I edited the film's structure as well as all images, sound, and motion graphics.
Oscar & Pierpont (comedy series)
Editing of all video for a "silent film" comedy series called Oscar & Pierpont. My objective is to each video an old silent film feel. I edit the structure, images, sound, and graphics. It's amazing how much work goes into making a video appear old!
Graphics are essential to improving the look and feel of a video.
Bohemians Art Exhibition
Bohemians is an art exhibition I created to communicate a feeling of spontaneity and intuition. Containing a series of paintings and poems, each piece contributes to this idea in its own way to create something larger than the individual pieces themselves.
The show was on display in downtown Fort Myers, Florida for the month of January 2023.

I'm continuously designing and printing new t-shirts. Generally, my designs are bright and bold.
I've created a new batch of shirts for the Winter 23/24 season. Check them out here.
Let me know if you have any sizing questions!
Painting is a constant in my life. I'm always finding new ways to visually express myself.
My work is the physical attempt at communicating my individual attitude toward life. It is a response to life as I see it. I think of each piece as a link in a chain instead of an end product. Spontaneity is important in my work and I like to portray a worry-free, self-confident energy.
The purpose of each piece is not to produce a final idea, but instead to throw something into the air.
Formula 1 Poster Series
As a passion project, I designed a series of posters celebrating each Grand Prix race on the Formula 1 calendar. My objective with each was to create intrigue and promote the sport.
Keats Koala is a digital children's comic I illustrate and write in my free time. The idea was hatched from my family's experience in Australia. We moved to Melbourne when I was a few months old and stayed for a couple years. I've been intrigued by koalas ever since.
