Joined AIGA: 2013, Joined the Board 2014, President 2017
My background is a grab bag of creative media ranging from professional touring musician to graphic designer, also working with film, scripting, and now motion. I'm an unashamed dilettante of the creative fields and believe adamantly that design is a fundamental change agent capable of motivating, organizing, and accomplishing a wide array of agendas.
