About

Picture of Me

I'm originally from Southern California and I'm constantly curious. My work reflects that and consists of anything from hand drawn letters, to websites and everything in between. A not so long time ago in a state very similar to the one I reside in currently, I graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo's Art & Design program.

Currently I reside on the West Coast in sunny California and I am an avid coffee drinker and doodler. In my spare time I draw and paint letters, cook delicious food, and look for new things to explore. If you would like to learn more about me, grab a drink, or find out what I did last Saturday, just send me a message!

Plateable

This project was a joint venture with two other designers in different roles. We started with an idea for an app, a nutritional companion that allows you to track your food your way. The project consited of extensive research on how the user interacts with an app like this. We compared what our app did to other leading apps on the market to get an idea of what we wanted to make our sit apart form the others.

Our app has features that let you interact with your meals through pictures of your food, it also does not track progress through calories, but instead we focus more on portion size and basic food groups. Our app is set apart from others through the ease of use and the interactions that you use to track your food.

We went through a lengthy process of trial and error and figuring out task flow of our app. We even went through a couple rounds of user testing and observed how users interacted and ran into problems in the first rounds of our app. All in all the app is a continued sucess and we are still working on a posible prototype and furturing the app.

Sign Painting #1

Over a year ago I started exploring sign painting and started working on personal projects to learn the craft. I started spending time at a local sign shop and learning the craft from the painters there.

When I first started it was taking me weeks to finish a sign and I couldn't make up my mind on what I wanted to paint.

I try to find inspiration in anything, quotes from movies and shows, random sayings or even album titles.

Lately I have been trying to branch out and experiment with different styles, as well as trying to work on a larger scale.

Lettering #1

I have always been intruigued with drawing by hand and found hand-lettering about 2 years ago. It married my love of typography with the ability of working with my hands and gave me something to explore.

All of these projects are personal projects with a couple collaborations, such as the 10 more days till Xmas. Which was a collaboration countdown with 12 other lettering designers.

Sign Painting #2

This is one project that has expanded into an exploration of styles. In completing each stage of this project I relaize that all I am doing with sign painting is exploring but that just facinates me more about it.

With each side I got to find a style that looked interesting, research that style and ask questions on how it was created. Each exploration gainning more and more interest and complexity.

This was my longest project to date, each week i was able to add a little more each time, and with the constant work came experience working with the instruments and I found myself being able to complete more each time, I was happily suprised to see that I was improving, even on such a minute scale.

This next side was the first side, I was eager to start painting as I had just got the box. So I decided to jump in and just do gigantic type and keep it simple with a little flare.

History of Basketball

This project was one of my first into the realm of motion animation. I chose a subject that is interesting to me in Basketball but I tried ti create a topic that many people may not know about. The project seemed challenging at times, with the fact that I was learning a new field of study.
