I'm a graphic designer and writer based in Virginia Beach, Virginia. This site contains information about my work, side interests and background, as well as ways to contact me.

What's New?

As of Summer 2018, I'm working on completing the writing projects that I've been working on the past few years, as well as doing web and graphic design on a freelance basis. The book by former Waikiki beachboy Barry Napoleon, which I published last year, is available on I've also been Instagramming sunrises from Virginia Beach. You can contact me if you are interested in design services, and see what I'm up to on a somewhat day-to-day basis on my personal Instagram account. See below for contact info and how to get in touch.
