I have over 25 years of professional experience in visual communications in a variety of public and private organizations as well as on my own. I have a particular interest in typography-driven solutions as well as incorporating original illustration into branded experiences. I’m currently helping businesses grow by developing their branding and digital strategies as OKTHX, and in my spare time I create fonts through my type foundry Midwest Type.
I grew up in a small town south of Cleveland on a state-owned research farm surrounded by experimental field plots. I later worked as a research assistant for The Ohio State University at an agricultural facility before starting my career in graphic design. Today I live in Akron, Ohio, with my wife Chelsea and our dogs Penny and Zeke. When not in the studio I’m most likely outside pulling weeds or messing around with my letterpress setup.
I’m a pretty busy guy these days, but will occasionally take on interesting freelance projects, so if you have something cool in mind, please get in touch.
