I was featured as the first guest artist for Foundlings press chapbook series. The Chapbook contest selected one artist, and one poet to work together to make a short book. I worked with Lytton Smith and his poetry series “My Radar Data Knows Its Thing”. I designed the book from the ground up. Picking the size determining the layout, colors, and making all of the artwork in the book. The Buffalo News reviewed the book and said “the result is a handsomely designed book of art and poetry.”

Over the Past year I worked for ASI. ASI owns Fuji bikes, Kestrel Bikes, SE bikes, Breezer Bikes and Tuesday cycles. The first 3 months I worked there I was on contract as a product designer. This meant that I would be designing the graphics and choosing the color ways that went on many of their bikes that will be releasing for their 2019 model year. While there I was able to design some of their highest anticipated bikes for 2019. Another part of my job was to prepare the bikes for the website as the photos came in from the photoshoots in China and Taiwan. Most of the bikes required me to photoshop on next years model of components like forks, rear derailleurs, wheels, and tires.
I currently work at Keswick Cycle in sales, but I also do all of their design and take photos for social media. Keswick Cycle is the largest bike shop In Pennsylvania and very rewarding to work for. It’s always great to get a kid on their first bike or help a disabled person ride by getting them on a trike. Yeah, we sell lots of high end bikes, but we put everybody on the right bike for them not whatever bike is in stock. Working at Keswick has taught me a lot about customer service, and it has definitely helped me create better professional relationships with my clients..
Mike Griard is one of the biggest event planners for Downhill skateboarding events. He hosts two of the largest events on the east coast including the world cup at Burke Mountain in the summer of 2015. As he has extended his business and event planning he felt the need for a logo. As a fellow downhill skateboarder I approached him and proposed I do the job. The logo has now appeared all over the world, from t-shirts, to events, to event posters, sponsorships, and more. I did not create the burke mountain free ride poster, or the central mass flyer, I just included them to show use of the logo. I did however ceate the mini ramp poster at the end for one of his events in Massachussets, which brings together more riders than any other event on the east coast.
This was a project I created in a class as a senior in the fall of 2015 with Chris Myers at The University of the Arts. We wrote our own narrative, and set out to design compositions for them using stylistic guidelines. Some of the guidelines included single weight, one image, multiple images, and imagery as a metaphor. My particular story was about the time I was hit by a car in high school, and learned just how quickly your life can change if you aren't careful.
These photographs document my travels across North America, and the people I have met along the way as well as the commercial work that I did for ASI’s brands. While working at ASI I took photographs for Fuji Bikes, Breezer Bikes, Kestrel Bikes, and Performance Bike shops.
A weekly personal exercise using Adobe Illustrator to expand on technical skills and generate ideas.
Valkyrie Truck Company is local to Philadelphia, but has started to expand internationally over the past year. The company needed an info graphic to explain the specs of their award winning Voxter precision trucks. Evan the owner approached me and we went to work. This is the final product that is shown on their website, and in the Voxter package when you buy the trucks.
Rev was the title of my television network for my senior branding project. The Images are from the final project book. The videos are the foundations for the channels branding. The videos from top to bottom illustrate the basic motion, the shceduling car, an extended bump, and a bump using the lower thirds.
This project was for my color in Visual communication course with Kristie Williams. We studied color theory, and eventually proposed a solo project for the second half of the semester. My information graphic illustrates the differences between a common skateboard, and a modern downhill skateboard. After the poster was completed Community Bikes and Boards in Philadelphia bought it for the shop. The last picture is an updated version with better over all organization.
The purpose of this project was to photograph similar products and create layouts using the original photographs. The layouts were supposed to be super controlled, transtitioning to a more loose layout by the third layout, with the second in between.
