Story
Tagline
Creative Direction, Design & Ideas
Introduction
I specialize in Creative Direction, Art Direction, Design, Concepting, Interface Design, Interactive Design, Mobile & App Design, Ideation and more. 

I primarily work on my own, yet work with many other freelancers who allow me to take on projects that I would never be able to tackle on my own.

I have been lucky enough to work and wrestle with some great brands over the past few years in the capacity of a Creative Director, Art Director and Designer. When I left the mountains of Montana & Idaho, I was able to start my career in the San Francisco Bay area. From snow and mountain lions to fog and sea lions, it was an interesting and exciting change. After working with my manly hands, leading and learning from and with some of the best men and women in our field, I moved to one of the best places in the country, Hood River, OR.

One of the best burger joints. They do burgers the right way. Their traditional burgers are great and done the old fashioned way. Their other unique burgers such as the Jose Mendoza with green chilis are amazing. But the really secret is ordering the Peanut butter pickle bacon burger. It sounds crazy at first, but 9 out of 10 people I have ate with say it is their all time favorite burger ever, and I agree.

We are lucky to have three decent Thai restaurants in Hood River. The Thai house has a great menu with lots of options you sometimes don't see at some Thai places. My personal favorite dishes are the Pineapple Curry and Pho. It was great to discover decent pho outside of a big city.

Not the best choice. Last time the guy cooking was wearing a wife beater and sweating in the food.

All around a nice place for coffee and some simple unique breakfast and lunch items. Great breakfast sandwich.

Some of the best views of Mount Hood while eating. Food is above par. Great place for lunch or a nice normal dinner.
