An artist and graphic designer based in northern Michigan.
Web design and development for small businesses has been my focus for most of my career. It has given me a chance to work with every kind of client imaginable and do all manner of different marketing tasks. It has been the best kind of education.
My passion for drawing has remained intact throughout my career. It's a skill/hobby that has allowed me to bring something different to design projects. I'm good with vector images, photo editing, digital painting, and all the technical stuff involved in making sure that images reproduce well for digital and print projects. I've created illustrations for websites, blogs, wine labels, event posters, logos, magazine articles and package designs.
I began working with Right Brain Brewery on their label designs and other packaging in 2015 and it reignited my love of drawing. Since then I've launched an Etsy Store called Hey Old Goat. My wife Emily affectionately nicknamed me "Old Goat" (when I was still in my 30s). The Store features items (art prints, shirts, phone cases, etc.) bearing my artwork and is a labor of love. I continue to make art and add products to that store. I also continue to draw and thus I persist. Check out Hey Old Goat
I have good written and verbal communication skills. I'm honest yet affable. I love brainstorming and coming up with surprising ideas. I make decent Dad Jokes and bad puns. I have no problem answering a question with I don't know. Let's figure it out. Then I figure it out.
I am available for freelance or contract work. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to start that conversation.
I am also available for web projects through Bright Bridge Studios.
Thank you kindly for your interest in my work. :)
