Delta Lambda Phi - Psi Chapter
As webmaster for my fraternity chapter, this site serves primarily as a wealthy information resource for prospective brothers. It offers short biographies of current brothers, rush and event information, links and campus resources, and pictures of previous events.
Las Vegas wedding photographer Jill Jennings hired me to create a website to showcase her work. The primary goal of this design was to organize and highlight the variety and abundance of photography services she offered.

espresso, colored pencil, glue on paper
My final piece in Roma continued in line with using espresso as a medium to characterize an elegant pinup figure. PinUp utilizes varying densities of espresso and cutting techniques on three seperate pieces of paper which are then pasted together to emulate depth.
watercolor, espresso, colored pencil on paper
Using only found imagery from my Italy trip, I wanted to emulate serigraph techniques but had no access to a screen or a press. What I created was a rededication of some of my favorite pieces that are collaged together with a surrealist feel.
espresso, colored pencil on paper
Espresso is such an integral part of Italian culture that I wanted to incorporate it into my work in Roma. Its warm color and character and its unexpected results make it a fun experimental, readily available medium.
watercolor, xerox transfer on paper
A series of 12 personal postcards reflecting on my time in Roma. Using some of the Eternal City's famous pieces I wanted to collage and convey my experience of feeling both inspired and overwhelmed by what Roma offered.
Poking fun at our society's current environment regarding gender and sexuality, Runway is my most ambitious silkscreen to date, comprising 16 color runs. This is also a precursor for me to using Roman statuary as emotive representational figures.
Image Projection: Consumer Sexuality
Half of a two-part series, this piece maps out what female sexuality is "supposed" to be using shallow, commercial imagery. This somewhat cynical exaggeration also attempts to define how what we buy and consume shapes and even becomes our identity.
Image Projection: Consumer Masculinity
Half of a two-part series, this piece maps out what male sexuality is "supposed" to be using shallow, commercial imagery. This somewhat cynical exaggeration also attempts to define how what we buy and consume shapes and even becomes our identity.
One of my earlier screenprints, this piece is largely an experiment of color and transparency to explore the boundaries of the medium.
two-color reductive linocut
Drawing from Lichtenstein's overly emotional and satirical Drowning Girl, this piece uses humor as a vehicle to toy with sex and gender roles and explore how man has been stereotyped when confronting emotions.
A one-color landscape linocut. I wanted to experiment with different textures and carving techniques to emulate various natural elements.
