Music, skateboarding, and a variety of art classes sparked my interest in art and design at an early age. I grew up in a small town and was always looking for something new to entertain me. I had a huge appetite for book stores, record stores, and interesting art. I was the kid with the “weird” music and book collection. Looking back, of course, none of it was all that strange. In any case, I spent a lot of time in the “big city” of Fargo-Moorhead. Most visits began with a stop at Disc & Tape, Fat Kat, and Vinyl Connection, followed by visits to book and thrift stores, before seeing some relatively unknown band at long-gone venues like the downtown Fargo Elk’s Club, Exit 99 or The Moose Lodge.
I changed majors three times while in college – first journalism (Fergus Falls Community College), then advertising (MSUM), and finally graphic design (SCSU). Little did I know that I’d end up using all three in my professional life.
My wife and I lived and worked in the Twin Cities for about 16 years before deciding to relocate to the Fargo-Moorhead area in an effort to live closer to all of our parents, spend more time with our kids, and avoid long commutes.
During the summer of 2016, we left the Twin Cities and moved to Moorhead. I spent my first few years here freelancing and working remotely before deciding that it was time to branch off, do my own thing, and start building a client base in the Fargo-Moorhead area. So here I am!
When I’m not working, you might find me spending time with my wife and daughters (8 and 11), catching a band at The Aquarium, or having a beer at Junkyard or Harold’s with old friends. I also love biking, camping, spending time at the lake, local history, art, and craft beer.
Final thoughts. Let’s laugh. Let’s make your project FUN! Let’s harness the energy and excitement that you put into your business and make something amazing together! Does that sound cheezy?
