just the

essentials

Sometimes innovation is as easy as opening your eyes. I consider myself a very observant person, and this reflects in my work: simple, careful, clever.

Born in California, my family’s Midwest tour visited South Dakota and Kansas before setting up shop in Lincoln, Nebraska, where I respectfully acknowledge my home’s location on the traditional and unceded territories of the Jiwere, Očhéthi Šakówiŋ, and Pâri (Pawnee) indigenous peoples.

Wherever I go, whatever I do, I bring a laugh. I hope to share at least one with you.

trophy life

I still think awards are stupid. But they’d be less stupid if they went to the right people.
