Creative Director, M22
BFA Graphic Design 2013


My job is designing everything at M22. I am currently working on website stuff and will shortly start bike kits. I am also responsible for interior store design and products. I am really stoked about it, since it's a very Michigan passionate company. Being able to do stuff that is all for outdoor-related activities is great too! The company has a great work/life balance as well, which is something I really find key for creative flow.

It has been a crazy journey getting here though! I spent a little over two years as a designer at another firm where I had to put in insanely long hours a lot of the time. Good experience though and I am thankful for it!
