Hello! I'm a designer and developer based in Brooklyn, NY. While I was studying at Savannah College of Art and Design, I co-founded Art House Co-op and The Sketchbook Project where I've been acting as creative director for the past six years.

My work has been featured in The New York Times, GOOD Magazine, New York Magazine, PBS, The Washington Post, Cool Hunting, HOW Magazine, and CNN.

I'm pumped to be speaking at SXSW in March about the hurdles involved in growing The Sketchbook Project. Oh, and I co-authored a book coming out in April!

Feel free to stalk me on Twitter, Dribbble, or Instagram and judge my musical taste at Rdio.

I'm available for work. Contact me.

The Sketchbook Project Logotype

I co-founded The Sketchbook Project while in college over six years ago. What started as a small art project with friends from school turned into interacting with tens of thousands of artists from around the globe, creating multiple social and e-commerce based websites, branding the project annually, engineering a catalog system to keep track of over 22,000 books, figuring out how to digitize and build a digital library of sketchbooks, taking the books on ten nationwide tours to over 60 venues, and creating a brick and mortar storefront in Brooklyn, NY called the Brooklyn Art Library to permanently archive all of the works.

A Million Little Pictures

A Million Little Pictures was an interactive art project we created through Art House. It's been running for over six years, with each iteration being a relaunch and revamping of the project.

We sent out thousands of disposable cameras to people who signed up through our website and asked them to shoot the roll and send the prints back.

By joining together thousands of specific moments to create a single immersive environment, A Million Little Pictures imagines a communal story from the images of our lives. There was a dozen exhibitions held around the country.

Art House Co-op

Art House was the parent company of The Sketchbook Project and what we did all of our other art projects under. The goal was to utilize our website to connect people around the globe through a common goal of creating art in both the digital and physical world. Our biggest belief was that anyone should be able to participate.

We've now worked with 60,000+ artists from around the globe and have organized over 50 projects and 6 nationwide tours.
