I am an entrepreneurial graphic designer. In 2002, I founded the marketing and creative agency, Riser, which serves a list of high-profile clients including Disney, Google, Warner Bros., National Geographic, Sony, Fox, ABC, and NBC. My book, Burn Your Portfolio: Stuff they don’t teach you in design school, but should, was published in 2013 by Peachpit Press. Anatomy of a Design Proposal, my second book, was published in 2014. I am happily married and the proud father of three sons. When time permits, I blog in an effort to give back to an industry that has been good to me.
