The Work Me

Globally-Rooted Designer
I've got San Diego roots, callling St. Louis home, with a Caribbean upbringing that enriches my design perspective.
Thriving in St. Louis, I craft user-centric, aesthetically pleasing web, print, and digital experiences. My juggling act? Balancing technical constraints, deadlines, and business goals – all while being a proud dad to my son and my awesome bonus son.
Art Director
My art direction expertise goes beyond strategy and planning. I excel at translating client needs into compelling visuals, overseeing creative teams, and ensuring project success.
One-Stop Shop Designer
I'm a passionate designer who thrives on crafting cohesive brand identities, user-friendly websites, and captivating media experiences. Whether you need to:
  • Build or Refine your Brand
  • Design or Redesign Websites
  • Craft Engaging Media

I offer a comprehensive design skillset to meet all your visual communication needs. That completes my professional bio!

The Off Work Me

Inner Child Alert!
I'm digging up an old typographic style out of memory. I played with it as a kid and am turning it into a custom typeface!
Lifelong Hiker
Hiking, snapping pics of epic views, and getting lost in nature with a good trail beneath my feet - that's my happy place. We're also all about adventure travel, camping under the stars, and soaking up gorgeous landscapes. No surprise then, that Denver, with its mountain magic and outdoor scene, totally stole our hearts! After five awesome trips in the last two years, we're packing our bags and moving there in the second half of 2024 - why wait, right?
Lens-Loving Explorer
Landscapes fill my SD Cards and camera roll, but I also freeze-frame sports action, take night sky shots and shoot wedding magic. - Sony a7riii & Samsung S22 Ultra, MacBook design enthusiast..interesting device bio?)
Favorite Movie Directors:
Tarantino, Ritchie, Rodriguez, Schneider & Kubrick.
