I’m a digital designer with over 12 years of experience solving problems and producing powerful marketing campaigns.

Tasting notes: This designer blends a mellow style with a hilarious wit. His wild brightness and rustic overtones are balanced with notes of tropicalia and wet dog. The flavor profile may be complex, but his designs are as smooth as Al Green.

GOOD DESIGN IS LIKE AN AGGRESSIVE MOOSE. IT CLEARLY COMMUNICATES ITS INTENT.


I had the pleasure of working with Erik Hall of In Tall Buildings and Wild Belle on his 2015 album Driver. I designed the complete album art including typography, artwork, record label and packaging.

Hans is remarkable in his ability to create work that is timely and top-notch as well as immensely creative and forward-thinking.

Erik asked me to create a screen printed poster for an In Tall Buildings show in Chicago.


I produce all digital media for Brandes Investment Partners including animation, video, web, email campaigns and lead generating landing pages. Here’s a few clips from a video series I produced for a large ad campaign.

GOOD DESIGN IS A FRIENDLY REUSABLE ROCKET. IT’S INCREDIBLY DOWN-TO-EARTH.


My wife started a cocktail cherry company in 2012, Mess Hall Cocktail Co. that she is in the process of selling.  I took care of all marketing and design needs including packaging, advertising, events, video and digital. I built the website using WordPress and a theme that I tweaked with custom CSS and a unique e-commerce set-up where we offer subscriptions services to bar and specialty food shop customers. The combination of exceptional cherries and design have landed us in the pages of national industry magazines and on the shelves of specialty shops like Crate & Barrel, West Elm and Murray’s Cheese.


I was recently commissioned to create an updated identity for a neighborhood Italian bakery in San Diego.

GOOD DESIGN IS A WELL DRESSED GRANDPA. IT TELLS A GREAT STORY.


For a year and a half I was the Senior Digital Designer for Grant Thornton, an independent audit, tax and advisory firm with revenues in excess of $1.3 billion and 56+ offices across the United States with more than 500 partners and 6,000 employees. I designed graphic and digital marketing materials, including presentations, white-papers, web content, video, animated ads and charts, as well as events and booth designs.

All of the design work for Grant Thornton was done adhering to extensive compliance standards as well as following global brand guidelines.


This video was part of a large ad campaign we did at Grant Thornton. I produced the entire piece including the animation, storyboards and editing.

The owner of Williams & Murray asked a handful of artists to create custom  images or animations for their Instagram feed. I was thrilled to be included and made this for a Valentine’s promotional campaign


From 2007 to 2013 I was the Media Producer for the Video Data Bank in Chicago. I managed all phases (concept, budget, time table, design, production, publishing) of digital and print media including print, packaging, video production, as well as the UI/UX for the large and complex database driven website.

I worked with Hans as a colleague from 2008 to 2012 in the Video Data Bank, the nation’s largest non-profit media distributor where I served as Distribution Manager. In that time Hans implemented a contemporary and cohesive graphic and media brand for the organization which he seamlessly integrated into all our media products, publications, websites, and print collateral.

GOOD DESIGN IS AN EPISODE OF MACGYVER. IT SOLVES PROBLEMS.


Here’s a few samples of branding and identity projects I’ve designed over the years. Ward Eight, January Prints, Naturally Fortified, and Mess Hall Cocktail Co. 

Hans has an artistic mind and eye, AND has the technical skills to execute an idea and make it functional.

I tend to make a painting or illustration from time to time – thanks to an artist background complete with an MFA in painting and drawing and the student loan debt that came along for the ride.

I need a budget.
You need a designer.

You like to laugh? I’ll make you laugh. At least I’ll try.
