I was born and raised in Edenton, North Carolina on the Albemarle sound. I spent my summers working on produce farms and then made my escape to UNC – Chapel Hill when I graduated from high school. I have a B.F.A. in studio art with focuses in painting, life drawing and print making. I am a self-taught graphic designer and have been producing art and design for as long as I can remember. Adobe Illustrator is my jam and vector graphics are my specialty. My projects range from t shirt designs, screenprinted posters to building website / ecommerce platforms for all types of businesses.

I get pumped when I can combine my art and design with music projects. I currently design for, run, ship, and maintain the online store for the Lincoln Theatre and the Piper’s Tavern, among others. Please support your local music venue!
I like putting on my backpack and disappearing to spots around the world and getting a different perspective on things. So far, my “been to / backpacked through” list includes New Zealand, Spain, England, France, Amsterdam, Prague, Egypt, Israel, Palestine, Colombia, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Jamaica, India, and Japan. I cannot wait to put my backpack on again.
I am excited to be a part of this team and stoking the fire of the Brand Fuel philosophy.
