Job Title: Senior Designer

What do you tell people you do?
I have a difficult time explaining what I do. To people unfamiliar with the industry and especially my family, 'graphic designer' seems to be the safest route, but I find that term to be a little vapid and somewhat obsolete. I suppose it's better than being called a graphic artist. A couple years ago I started saying 'Graphics and Design.' I think it's funny and clever. I think I'm funny and clever.

What do you bring to ODC beyond your Graphics and Design skills?
As displayed in the Crosspark Challenge, I bring my incredibly reliable jumpshot.


Favorite office pooch: This is going to be controversial, but none. If I ​had​ to choose, I would choose Sprout, pictured here.Technically, Sprout was only with us for a short time through Brian’s rescue program, but in that short time, Sprout made a lasting impact on me that will remain unmatched

What's a good book you read recently?
I really dug this book called 'The Postmortal' by Drew Magary. I'm currently reading 'Will Not Attend' by Adam Resnick. Both books are pretty dark in different ways.

It's 11 am on Sunday. What are you doing?
Either sitting at home deciding what to do with my wife or sitting in the car deciding where to get brunch with my wife. This is not a cool answer.
