Having trained and worked in the space between Design and Marketing, my biggest professional passion is branding. Brand evaluation, strength, improvement, and implementation, especially through online presence, are where I hope to work most. Visit my portfolio to get a sense of my design aesthetic. In short: clean, simple, modern.

I’ve been on social media since Xanga was a thing. That was middle school for me. I’ve carefully, painstakingly built myself online on every major platform since then, diligently networking, subscribing, friending, adding, linking, and tweeting my way to a Klout score peak of 75. I’d love to share some of what I’ve learned along the way with you.
My pride and joy is writing for Seattle music blog Rain City Ambience, where I stay busy posting news, album reviews, show recaps, op ed pieces, and event previews. After just over a year of diligently writing and coordinating with PR, bands, and fellow blog staff writers, I’ve earned the role of Managing Editor. I work with and manage a handful of crack writers, reviewers, photographers, and interviewers to cover the best in music in the Pacific Northwest and otherwise.

A year each in a consumer-faced tech goods company and a triathlete training business shooting and editing product photos with less than professional quality gear means I’m used to generating beautiful images without thousands of dollars of fancy equipment at a reasonable pace. I’ve photographed and edited the cutting edge in mobile device technology, triathlete training equipment, and my personal passion, live music. Visit my portfolio for sample images.

Although this has to do with having a sense for layout and graphics, this could also be construed as ethics. A school year and change at an award-winning college daily and an internship at a startup nonprofit have helped me build a sharp sense for ethical dilemmas, allowing me to catch potentially dangerous ethical situations most others miss.
I’ve built or Partscasted five or six guitars now, and I’m always working on new guitar projects. I can do just about anything from minor services, like restrings and basic hardware installs, all the way up to Partscasting and guitar build consults. I love guitars, and chances are good that I’ll love to work with you on yours.
