A few months back I designed some initial brand elements, print ads and a simple website for my buddy’s surf retreat in Rincon Puerto Rico, Villa Play Maria’s. The property sits in the heart of the area dubbed “the surfing capital of the Carribean”. This is one of those true passion projects where I get to combine my love for design, watersports, and travel to adventerous destinations. Roxanne & Russ Scully and the whole Villa Playa Maria team have created an adventurous and luxurious experience with the best surf and sunsets the Carribean has to offer.

This year’s Standup for the Lake ad just dropped in the Standup Journal Summer 2014 issue. Always nice to see our event in one of the top SUP mags!
One of the most rewarding types of design projects I have worked on recently has been web-based and mobile application interface design.

I really like how the sun is lighting up the water in this vdeo. Okay, the ripping 25 mile an hour wind is pretty nice too.
I recently completed this project for my friend, colleague, and digital marketing guru Rich Nadworny. The project called for a logomark for the new consulting firm as well as a simple responsive website to introduce the company to its target audience.Read More
This is how we beat our surf-jones in the middle of January in Vermont.
Most weeks I have the privilege of working with the crazy creative folks at my favorite (the only) surf shop in Vermont, WND&WVS, to come up with and execute ads for print & Web. For any particular campaign my role can be designer, art director, copywriter, illustrator, photographer, and yes, occasionally male model (I’m currently working on my own version of “Blue Steel”).Read More
I picked up my copy of the Print Magazine Regional Design Annual today and was thrilled to see my work share the spotlight with the likes of Design Army, Go Welsh, Hill Holiday, and Korn Design. Lot of exceptional design coming out of the East region this year.
My first trip to Fire Island, NY — freeride/bump & jump ripping with WND&WVS brothers Gary Franklin, Russ Scully and a very cooperative Mother Nature in October.
…over-powered with a 7.5 square meter sail on Lake Champlain with my WND&WVS bruddahs, Gary Franklin and Russ Scully, and the “Spirit of Ethan Allen”. The lake water is still warm. Get out there before its ice.
