/ Workflow

I’m not your typical creative-type

Have you ever had a freelance creative not deliver on time? Or maybe bombard you with emails 6 or 7 times a day? That’s not how I roll. I’ll ask for the details up front, and then I deliver work on time.

Your time is valuable, so you should be able to trust the person you ask to do your design. Marketing managers, brand managers, and startup CEOs alike need someone to rely on, without the hassle of constantly needing to check in to make sure work is being completed. I work to build trust and to truly understand your brand, that way I can work as independently as possible.

A young, entrepreneurial design talent. I met Kyle at the perfect time... I had serious design needs and strict deadlines. I hired him and he was instantly thrown into a high-pressure situation and handled it like a PRO. The marketing campaign and product launch project he joined entailed a high level of skill, autonomy, communication, and collaboration. Our client was WOWED. And so was my team and I. He's now a preferred partner of ours and I'm grateful for his consistent integrity and continued loyalty.

Kyle is exceptionally talented! As I was starting to get my business off the ground I reached out to Kyle regarding a vision I had for my brand and how I wanted my logo to reflect that. He more than delivered! Providing three different visions allowed me to choose which one I best felt resonated with me. I could not recommend him more highly. Great work. Will repeat business again!

/ About Me

Music, Cinci beer, and technology

Outside of design, I’m an avid fan of all types of music (hint: I’m always looking for good music recommendations). I’m obsessed with new technology because it is consistently changing how we live and operate in our daily lives. Because of this, I am constantly trying to learn new things, both about design and things completely unrelated to my specific field. And while many people are huge coffee lovers (myself included) I'm always up for a great Cinci beer and talking about Premier League soccer or the NFL.
