Create. Disciple. Design.

I’ve always viewed myself as a creator, long before that was ever my job description. Now, I’m hired by people to create brands that birth new companies, and concepts that birth new businesses. When I came up with the name of this blog, “creation” was something that happened when I wrote, but I think the goal here has always been to use creativity to influence, influence to connect, and connection to build new communities.

I’m an entrepreneur, creative director and business owner at Typeset Design and Block & Gray. I’m married to my amazing wife, Hannah, and I’m also a dad to two beautiful kids, Evelyn and Lewis. I love Jesus, my kiddo, creativity, words, and people!
