  It may be truism to say, but Graphic Design and sign making are in my blood.  They are etched within my earliest childhood memories, as my father has owned his own sign shop since 1976 in Corvallis, Ore.  

  In 2007,  I began to hone in my passion for the industry while working at Oregon State University in a sign shop located on campus.  As I designed signage, working closely with customers, I assisted in making the development of the campus’ aesthetics   

   In January 2013, I moved my family to Portland, Ore. where I worked at Portland’s Vital Signs, mostly as an installer, broadening my creativity with an array of clients such as Nike and Adidas.  Within a year’s time I grew and learned a lot at PVS, making me aspire for more creative outlets. That’s when I took the plunge to start my own business in December of 2013. 

   As a freelance graphic artist, I build signage, create logos, and bring my client’s ideas to life through a number of different avenues and medias. I enjoy forging creative solutions for my clients using a laser cutter/engraver, a CNC router, a vinyl cutter, and basic wood working tools.  I also have the capability to make ADA compliant Braille signs, which is a relatively new and exciting part of the business.

   It’s my aim to see your project through from concept to reality, whatever it might be; and ultimately delivering an aesthetically pleasing product to be presented in a professional light.
