Hello, you!

I am a Graphic Designer living in Manhattan and working in Brooklyn. Yes, it's sort of dumb that way, but I always get a seat on the N train. So HA to that.

I was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii and attended Punahou School. I then (pretty randomly) decided to go to Parsons School of Design in New York City for college. I graduated from Parsons in May 2008 with a BFA and majored in communication design. Then I got thrown into the real world and spent a long time looking for a job. Currently, I work at a Brooklyn based design and letterpress studio called Swayspace where I spend my time working on a wide variety of projects from banking user interface to wedding invitations and drinking coffee.

I don't know what else you want from me. This is to avoid a widow.
