I have a degree in and passion for art history (to go with a couple others,) and I collect and love low-brow art. My office is overflowing with paintings and prints and weird little things I’ve picked up. It inspires me.
I’m an artist.
I also produce art (click here to dig some of it) and design and branding ideas and weird marketing schemes in my spare time. It’s just what I do. I’d do it (and I DO do it) even if I didn’t get paid to do it. I’m a brand and design and art guy.

Things I’m Not
I’m not insane, and I’m not stupid.
Yeah – I do some things that leave others in my field scratching their heads, but I do these things because I know from experience that they work for me – and that they work for the folks I work well with.
I’m not going to sell you shit you don’t need.
If I don’t think we’re a fit or that you won’t benefit from what I have to offer, we’ll part ways as friends (or whatever.) This kind of goes back to the thing above – it’s gotta work for you AND for me. If we don’t work, we don’t work – and no amount of money’s going to fix it.
I’m not getting paid to be nice – I’m getting paid to be effective as fuck.
Once you get beyond my bitter, aging punk shell you’ll find a really nice dude who wants to help other nice people. But at the same time, we all live in the real world where results matter. If stepping on a toe here and there is called for, I owe it to the people I work with to step on those toes. Dig?
