I have 10 years of art direction and design experience at both boutique design studios and advertising agencies, such as Wieden and Kennedy, where I've managed projects for clients ranging from large corporations, such as Starbucks, BEBE and Nike, to small non-profit photography museums. Most recently, I designed and art directed an identity and website for Hello Artists, an artist representative agency and packaging, posters, various merchandise for the bands She&Him, M.Ward, Monsters of Folk and Tu Fawning. I also do textile design for small fashion labels like Adam Arnold and Liza Reitz and play drums in 3 bands. My work has been published in Rolling Stone, People, Comm Arts, Pitchfork, Vanity Fair, FWA and Death Magazine; recently exhibited in Mercury Fashion Show and Last Splash Fashion show; and have played shows all around the US and Japan including: Music FestNW, Catch that Beat and CMJ.
When I'm not working or dancing around my house to the old school jams, I'm most likely designing textiles, running, doing yoga, spray paint stenciling or playing drums with Riddenpaa (www.myspace.com/riddenpaa) or Sleeping States (when they are in the States).
