This is a collection of selected content for a consumer brand called Swizl, an adult beverage and entertainment rebate platform where recipes, inspiration, and savings can be found for all kinds of brands. I played a role assisting in art direction for photo and video shoots, as well as the actual execution of the shoots. I assisted in concepting and ideation for social strategy and location scouting for venues as well as in-studio execution.
I got the opportunity to work as a part of a team to design the identity, experience, signage and production of the 2019 Inmar Analytics Forum, a data and tech conference partnering with Wake Forest University and featured speakers from leading tech firms and retailers, including Google, Retail Prophet, Opus, Nike and many more. I specifically focused on signage, photography, and some motion graphics for the Forum.
Modern Archive is a fictional furniture gallery I am currently building and improving upon to showcase designer furniture in a more democratic way. Charles and Ray Eames believed in furniture for the people, and this was my way of exploring that concept, hopefully without cheapening the value of well designed furniture.
I worked as part of a creative team to brand and execute signage for the Inmar Analytics Forum, a data and analytics conference put on by our firm.
The branding + Identity system for my freelance creative business. I wanted to keep it simple and clean, to keep myself open to all types of work and clients.
This is a personally directed project about a hotel brand suite that I have created. I was inspired by the smaller mid century boutique hotels that seem to be overlooked in our modern era. I wanted to evoke a brand that pays homage to it’s history while still appealing to a modern and young audience. All images were shot in an existing hotel; I styled and developed materials but did not design the interior space itself.
Based out of Fayetteville, Arkansas, City Grey is a multi-talented rock band beginning their debut with an EP entitled More than Steel.
I was lucky enough to work with their frontman and lead singer to develop an album cover for their self-recorded EP.
You can find their music on Spotify.
I’m fascinated by neon signs. They’re both kitschy and classic, and they act as landmarks as much as they do advertisements for their related businesses. They’re also ubiquitous: restaurants use neon, mechanics use neon, adult clubs use neon, it’s an interesting way to decorate a street and grab attention. In Austin there are almost as many signs as people and as a personal project I like to document them. Each one is a unique experience, as I often have to have an excuse, such as going to the bar, or eating at the restaurant. Some are also hard to get to, and some are in areas that I wouldn’t normally go to. If you want to hear some interesting stories send me an email!
This is a collection of weddings, engagements, and other events in people’s lives worth remembering. I was lucky enough to get to document these moments, and be a part of their lives. It’s a blessing for someone to trust you with these parts of their lives, and it can be intimidating to be so close to such intimacy, wanting to portray it correctly and accurately.
Each ceremony, engagement, and scene here was a unique undertaking. I try to understand each of my clients, what they want, who they are (to each other as well as to me) and lastly how they feel. Emotion permeates this kind of work, and I try my very best to capture those emotions to be remembered well.
Photographs from a short trip to Berlin and Munich. After a long drive, a couple layovers, and a nosebleed in the middle of the Munich train station, I managed to see a few museums, grab a couple weisen beers, climb the many Berliner Dom steps, and catch up with an old friend now living there.
During my senior year of college, 5 friends and I took a trip to Iceland for Spring Break. I worked two jobs and ate ramen for months to save up, and we drove 22 hours overnight for cheap flights. My family thought I had lost my mind, but seeing the northern lights, swimming in a hot spring surrounded by ice, and getting a chance to explore some of the world’s greatest natural wonders was worth it to me. I can’t wait to go back.
Senior pictures, fashion shots, headshots, and friends posing for me. If you’d like some taken, I’d be happy to help. Send me an email!
