I am a Branding + Design Director living in Chicago, Illinois. I enjoy developing brands from small marks to complex identity systems, and what yields from applying a rigorous design process to new and cutting edge fields. I teach design fundamentals at the Chicago Portfolio School, and am Chairman emeritus of the Chicago Creative Collective. I have a BFA Graphic Design from the University of Illinois (Urbana / Champaign). When not directing, designing, or drawing type, I am usually found on two wheels—with or without a motor.
