Experience & Ventures
Principal and Co-founder
Sunset City is a multi-disciplinary, branding-focused studio I started with a former Cuban Council colleague in Portland, OR. Some of our future-forward clients include: NASA, Google X, Facebook, Mikani, Nylas, and Otherlabs.
CCO and Co-founder
Soundsupply is a digital music discovery platform and marketplace I started with my brother while in grad school. In 2013, Lightbank, investment arm of Groupon, made a seed investment in the company, and we established an office in Chicago. Later that year, Fast Company called us an artist-friendly alternative to streaming services like Spotify.
Hello Monday is an award-winning digital agency based in Denmark and New York City. While an AD I worked on projects for companies like Reebok, Disney, YouTube, and NASA.
NASA, Goddard Space Flight Center
I interned for a scientist in the Biospheric Sciences branch at Goddard Space Flight Center my first year of grad school. I later stayed on as an employee for the remainder of my graduate school career, working with teams in Carbon Cycle Studies to develop graphic assets (animations, infographics, websites) that might help explain their research to the public in a more engaging way.
The People's Pennant
The People’s Pennant elevated the pennant from the confines of sports to celebrate the awesomeness of the everyday. We produced limited-edition screen-printed felt pennants by a group of amazing designers and illustrators including the Heads of State, Richard Perez, Ken Barber, Mikey Burton, Eight Hour Day, Invisible Creature, Always With Honor, and Brent Couchman.
