Started my career as a graphic and web designer in Osaka, Japan. Cut my teeth at Universal Studios Japan, InterContinental Hotels Group, and small Japanese ad agencies. Hobbies include cooking and being a cat person.
Currently Art Directing at Lone Tree Creative. Specialties include branding, graphic + web design, web development, presentation design and consultation, and Japanese marketing for native and international audiences.
Logos I've created for clients as part of comprehensive brand packages.
Japanese Design Projects
Here is a collection of projects I've done for Japanese clients. I'm fluent in business-level Japanese and can design effortlessly for native Japanese markets, a world of design that requires a wholly different approach than Western audiences.
Websites I've designed and developed for clients. I do design, and full HTML/CSS/JS front-end development.
The idea of coming up with a brand and message for an aesthetician was a huge challenge for me. I created the "You decide" campaign as a way to "take back" the idea of marketing to people about their appearance from the current trend of fear and negativity, to a message of positivity and deciding for yourself what it means to be beautiful.
Through Lone Tree Creative, I've had the opportunity to work with the #1 small town dive bar in Idaho, the 219 Lounge. I developed a comprehensive brand for their renovation and renewal, including a fresh logo, website, and dozens of event posters and advertisements that consistently fill the bar!
Timberline Helicopters approached Lone Tree Creative to develop a fresh new brand and web experience for their booming aerial services company. Currently adorning endless apparel and a whole fleet of top-of-the-line helicopters, the logos I created for TH and its subsidiaries are garnering love and turning heads at any elevation.
