I am a graphic artist specializing in product imaging, design, illustration, and motion graphics. I've been in the graphic arts business since 2000, working with design studios, educational institutions, and in direct client relationships. I hope to bring my talents to your business to help make it more successful and have fun while doing so. In the rare event that I am not at work you might find me out fishing on Henry Hagg Lake, hiking through the Coast Range mountains, kayaking the Tualatin River, or just cooking dinner at home for my lovely wife.
