I was fortunate to know from a fairly young age that design was my calling. The merger of art and technology is a place where I love to spend some quality time.
In my hometown, Grand Rapids, Michigan, I started my design career working in-house on some great teams. The most recent being the global brand team at Steelcase. In 2014, I made a big move to Southern California and joined the fast-paced agency world at 160over90.
In August 2017, after a few years filled with lots of rapid learning and growth but little sleep, I decided to step out onto my own and started Format Studio, a design and branding studio based in California. This new endevour has been challenging and very rewarding. I’m looking forward to all of the new opportunitiues ahead to do great work with inspiring people.
