Hey There, I'm Brian – A Designer Who Loves Code.

As an art director, designer and front-end developer, I have been building interactive experiences, creating brands and designing print materials for over eight years. I’m a fan of structure and simplicity in both design and code; organization and consistency are very important to me.

A few of my strengths are creative concept and strategy development, art direction, creative direction, UI/UX design, front-end development, typography, and bridging communication between developers and designers.

I find inspiration in nature, architecture, vintage fashion, indie electronica, science fiction and good lattes. When I’m not working, you can find me at a local coffee house, exploring indie art fairs, kickboxing, or even enjoying an old-fashioned cocktail.
