My wife and I moved to Nashville in late 2013 with our dog Rodney and our cat Onigiri after I graduated from the award-winning Graphic Design program at Mississippi State University. I have many MANY interests other than Graphic Design, including but not limited to: furniture making, robotics, sculpture, electronics, painting, drone racing, construction, photography, 3D Printing, 3D rendering, videography, entrepreneurship, toy design, camping, hiking, and printmaking.

I come from a large family with four sisters; two younger and two older; my father is the captain of a Towboat on the Mississippi river, and my mother owned a Florist before retiring. They taught me the value of building something for myself, hard work, and how together those things can get you anywhere.

Here in Nashville I volunteer as Art Director and head of media and communication for Make Nashville, a 501c3 dedicated to the Maker community. We recently acquired a building to build a makerspace, a place where people can come together to create, and the space provides the tools to do the creating.
