About

Business_Card-front-01From the first time of pressing a crayon to my bedroom wall, I’ve been annoying folks with art. Eventually this would bring me to pursue art professionally. Though they did not offer classes specifically dedicated to hand turkeys or crayon murals, I did graduate with a Bachelors degree in Art with a focus in graphic design.

Now with fourteen plus years of being in the design trenches and a wide variety of projects, jobs, clients, etc. under my belt, I stand before you as a man, a designer, an artist, an illustrator who once had a mullet. Viva La Ape Drape! Deleted Inc. is where I set focus these days. One might ask, what is Deleted, Inc.? Well, it has taken many forms since it’s inception in the dark and dreary dorm room in Powell, Wyoming. Most recently it has brought me to be a 100% full-time freelance designer/illustrator/artist. I’m open for projects, so please email me the details (or deets as the kids call them these days) of your project and you too can be a part of Beendeleted, Inc. Below is a listing of my previous work experience, a run down on skills and yes, there will be a test at the end of all of this, so take good notes.
