My Background

image95

My Medium

I use many different mediums, such as pencils &  markers on sketch paper to get things going.  I quickly move to a digital platform. I have fun experimenting in other mediums such as water colors, crayons and clay. Just about anything can be used to make art and become art. I believe that working in a single medium is restrictive to my artistic process. Each idea manifests in its own process and individual style.

My Inspiration

I enjoy reading, history, imagining the future, architecture, taking care of, playing with and walking my good boy Max (my dog), water gardens and my koi fish in my spare time.


Much of my inspiration comes from our natural environment.


I am also inspired by the designers I have worked for and with at prestigious architectural firms including Smith Hinchman & Grylls, Albert Khan and Wah Yee & Associates. In the cannabis industry Ive worked for and with the top firms & stars in our industry including BDT Smoke Shops, Jack Herer & Tommy Chong.

BRAND

image98

In it's simplest form a brand is a mark that identifies something as yours in your absence. 


A brand is what you represent and branding is the intelligent representation and presentation of the brand. 


Branding is a process with the purpose of  leaving an intelligent "mark"  on anyone when they have any interaction with your company.


Consistency in your brand and branding is required for optimum results, so its best to design a creative brand and create solid  plans early on in your business plans.
