Hey there you awesome person! Thank you so much for stopping by the playground, my thing on the Interwebs where my thoughts, work, ramblings, and other such goodies reside. No filler. No BS. I try to be honest in everything I do, and this website is no exception. I encourage you to look around a bit.

the past two years


Hey people


The past two years of my life have been rough for me. Fucking first world problems I guess.

I fell out of love with design, an art form I dedicated my life to for 14 years. I fell out of friendships that I thought I had built. I fell out of love with myself….


At this point, I really don’t want to continue my life as a designer. When I graduated in 2009, there was a huge market for peeps that could understand HTML and CSS and make a living off of it, and in the meantime, please clients with quality work.


Now Squarspace, Wix, and whathaveyou exist, and my job is becoming obsolete. Concept is failing, and though I have crazy, wonderful ideas, the means to try to get jobs for cool companies like Old Spice and Dollar Shave Club are few and far between, and I’m losing my confidence in my abilities.


That being said, I love the bar industry. I fucking love it. I’m actually good at it. I’m seriously considering pursuing a career in the field. Am I dumb? I don’t know.


What I do know, is that I’m tired of looking at a computer screen for 45-60 hours a week and listening to terrible ideas.


I dunno. I suppose it’s time for a change of pace, and I’m fine with that.

  • Hey, cuz, thanks for sharing. That’s tough. You gotta do what you love.

    What would be super dope is if you could land a gig designing craft beer labels. Micro-brewery labels are awesome.

    Hang in there. Miss you.
