My recent graphic design projects include brand development and design for A Very Cirque Christmas Carol.

Web Design

Since 2019 I've designed and maintained a website for Daiquiri Time Out, Galveston. I managed and helped grow their social media following from April 2021 through May 2022.

Photography

In 2016 I had the opportunity to design the layout for a catalog for Twenty-Five: A Celebration | Twenty-Five: A Conclusion, the final shows by founding curator of the Galveston Arts Center, Clint Willour. I stayed on at GAC as a documentation photographer and have photographed more than 80 exhibits since Dennis Nance became curator.Sign up for my Photography class at GAC in Spring 2024.

Misfits Productions

In the Summer of 2022, I joined Misfits Productions. We participate in seasonal events like Mardi Gras, the Fourth of July, and Dickens on the Strand with elaborate costumed floats and are now producing the Misfits Ball (formerly the Witch's Ball). We also support the Galveston Theatre & Arts Partnership, hosting screenings of classic films in the historic Scottish Rite Cathedral Theater.

Music & Art Event Photography

I'm an avid music lover, often photographing shows that I attend and I enjoy doing photography for local artists & musicians. Contact me for rates and availability for event and fine art photography.

Printmaking

I studied printmaking in college and learned about Solarplate, a process that is less toxic than traditional printmaking methods and lends itself well to photography. View my Solarplate printmaking series from 2009. I also enjoy relief printmaking, and since 2020 I have participated in several fundraising initiatives, raising over $1,000 through sales of my linocut prints benefiting local and national organizations.
