Hi, I’m Chris.
Audio engineer turned digital illustrator, teacher and science student. Growing up with Garbage Pail Kids and NES soundtracks, I developed a love for audio and design. I spent some time making a living as a Live Audio Engineer working at concert venues in and around Salt Lake City.
To give my ears a break, I began studying digital art, interactive design and animation. Shortly after I starting teaching design classes at Salt Lake City’s after school program Global Artways and Youth City. In 2008 I joined Spy Hop as their In-House Graphic Designer and Design Instructor.
Since then I have had a chance to work on freelance design, illustration, animation and interactive projects with a lot of different clients and organizations. As a freelancer I have developed a love of the creative process and adapting my perspective to other people/organizations to tell their story through visuals.
In 2015 I created a custom major to study a combination of science and design at Westminster College in Salt Lake City. In 2019 I received a bachelor degree in Biomedical Visualization. I am currently working on developing new tools to help patients and medical students engage with science in exciting new ways. My hope is to find new methods of accessing digital content through speech recognition and augmented reality.
I have a passion for the learning process and I love working with others to create illustrations and designs that connect people to great ideas. I also love coffee, skateboarding, reading, history, microbiology, psychology, running, hiking, trees, sunshine, rain, 1983-1994, old synthesizers, making electronic music, walking in random neighborhoods looking at buildings, being weird, trying to be cool, obsessing over color correction and lighting.
I am always interested in working with new people. Please reach out if you have a project that you feel would be a good fit!
