i'm an art director/graphic designer. i make stuff. it's aight.
nebulous things of interest: illustration, design, graffiti, running, hugs, cyclists, typography, NPR, the way libraries smell, coffee, tattoos, awkward subway staring contests, making things, neon colours, old buildings, dark alleys, jumping over manholes, grocery stores and big bodegas.
made in california, with a pit stop in seattle post-university, and now i'm in brooklyn.
What I’m doing with my life
currently i'm trying to figure out exactly what it is i want out of life and how best to execute that. i never seem content to be in one city for too long.
i like running. like, a lot, but mostly because i'm bad at real sports. I am a little bit of a workout junkie and I'm pretty married to my fitness regimen. that said, I'm not ripped and I don't have a flat tummy. I'm soft and pudgy and kinda short. Perhaps endearingly so, like a pug?
I’m really good at
running in the street like an idiot, all the time, everywhere in the city, at weird hours of the day. not sleeping. crafting things some people consider art. baking.
The first things people usually notice about me
scars on my hands/arms/knees because i am accident prone. weird tan-lines from hours of running outdoors.

The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
where i'll be six months from now. design problems, solutions, & philosophies. where to run. how to best live the life i want and whether or not i can fit the right things and people in it.
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
• I strongly dislike pants
• I can't do a cartwheel, or swim
• I think brunch is overrated.
