Without that, the resurrection of Jesus seems distant and Easter feels shallow. But, if you can sense the brokenness, you’ll get excited about the beauty of Easter. This series is about Four Broken Things in the Holy week story that reveal four beautiful things, if you have a heart to receive them." – Pastor Jon HuizengaBranding, Graphic Design, Print Design2014

The art of communication was the core of what was researched for my thesis. The execution was the creation of letterforms, the most basic element of communicating, using every day objects. Stephan Sagmeister said "Art and Design is all around us. It is just waiting to be discovered." My thesis was inspired by every day objects that surround me. Below is a sample letterform from my thesis — an interpretation of a Daily Drop Cap letterform "K" that was originally designed by Jessica Hische.Creative Direction, Graphic Design, Typography2013

Album Art & Photography Retouching was executed for Cameron Blake's new album "Without the Sound of Violence". The album is a challenging record for challenging times. In Cameron's own words, "this album is about the difficulty of learning about love without learning a lot about loss. All the songs live in this tension and attempt to tell some of the human stories we either do not hear or simply do not want to talk about."
Without the Sound of Violence is a continuation of the lyrically rich storytelling of his sophomore release Hide and Go Seek (2010) but explores a wider range of musical genres including indie-rock, blues, country, folk and soul.Creative Direction, Graphic Design, Retouching2013
