Over the years I’ve done sporadic merchandise for Challenger: hats, shirts, classic zine reprints, and CD mixtapes have all been realized as honest-to-god physical objects. You can even buy some of this stuff on the Challenger Web Shop. I typically make design the merch myself but sometimes call on artists and designers I like to help me out.

I’m a designer with a background in photography, publishing, and librarianship.  

Most recently, I was an in-house Designer at Harvard Innovation Labs. Freelance clients include Hindman Auctions (Freeman’s | Hindman), Pillar VC, First to Knock,  Jay Youngdahl, and more.

Before my career in design I was an academic librarian at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

In my spare time I maintain a personal art practice that is based in photography. Since 2017, I have published and edited Challenger, a BMX magazine that takes multiple forms. Its current form is a monthly subscriber only newsletter.
