Green Book: Creative Sustainable Action is a gathering of imaginative, artistic, and resourceful actions that give credence to our ability to make a difference. They shed light on how our decisions and our activities may be influencing the change in our climate. The collection of sustainable actions that make up Green Book illustrate that ‘doing’ is fundamental in bringing about long-term good for our planet and the people who call it home. They prompt us to
ask ourselves about what we can do to lighten our personal and professional footprint.

Dodge Challenger 2008 was to be Dodge's most anticipated and secretive release of the year. The Client's objectives were to create hype within a younger target market that was potentially unaware of the vehicle's muscle car history. MySpace was the
chosen application for the specific target to emphasize new modern power over just retro recreation. Multiple variations of the design were created to change upon news and image release dates.

The client asked for a Kohler Engines site redesign based off of their existing recent revamp of their Kohler Power web site.
The Kohler Engines redesign objective was to redirect information towards pre-sale users unlike the previous site which functioned almost entirely for post sales. Navigation was to be made more efficient in directing traffic to the correct areas of information. In the background, images pan in and out to illustrate the specific uses for different types of Kohler Engines.

The Rules for Staying Young
Commissioned to design an exhibition catalogue by the NWAA (New Wilmington Art Association) www.thenwaa.org in collaboration with curator Brookes Britcher.
The Rules for Staying Young exhibition explores the impact of baseball as an inspiration and conceptual model for historical and contemporary American artists, while investigating the ties between the game and the visual arts. From Thomas Eakins to Stephen Shore, baseball has captured the imagination and eye of American artists since its conception. The parallels between the timeless nature of our pastime and the evolving artistic studio are abundant, and remain profoundly relevant to contemporary practice. This exhibition highlights the rich territory between game and artist, where the perpetual moments of art and baseball meet. Curated by Brookes Britcher / Developed in partnership with the NWAA

Face Value Series
Graphic Design is my looking glass into the Fine Arts. As a designer you are trained to consciously create effective, clear, quick and concise visual communication to an external target audience. You use the evaluations of compiled survey studies, personality profiles, online user data, and fashion trends to predict and induce a positive visual identification with an intended subculture. The foundations to my personal Fine Art works often use visual communication methodologies to examine misconceptions created by social and personal communication failures. Immediate concepts of individual works often vary and draw from autobiographical experiences, but layered on top of the more intimate notions is the over arching objective to create work that is fun, that creates internal and external dialogue, that is accessible, and that works to further cultivate the viewer and I’s understanding of contemporary verbal, nonverbal, and visual communication.
The body of work references a favorite childhood board game “Guess Who.” A game in where you have a tray of eighteen unique illustrated heads facing two players, one red tray and one blue tray. Each player picks a card with one of the eighteen unique faces and is that character. The goal of the game is to take turns asking your opponent questions that will eliminate suspects until you know who your opponent is. The portraits are graphite on archival rag paper in hand made wood frames. There are thirty-eight drawings total, eighteen portraits in blue frames and eighteen portraits in red frames, and two body drawings.

These works were developed out of a personal examination of the function of Fine Art, visual communication, and perceived value both historically and in comparison to present culture.
Common stock art ready-made images were manipulated with the intention to examine each of these characteristics on several levels. Language in contrast to image, language and image in contrast to the frame, the object in contrast to the context of the gallery, the art world in comparison to society.
